Although, one could hardly call those the mountains. When an ordinary person hears this word, he imagines great stone formations with glaciers, cliffs, and precipices crowned by snowcaps. If one was born in the mountains or lived there, he would think of those particular ones. The Alps, the Cordilleras, the Caucasus, the Tien Shan – there are many mountains on tiny planet Earth, which rushes through the silent darkness of the Universe. There are great and small mountains, huge and noble. These mountains, though, compared to their more successful companions, were rather small and insignificant. They were burnt brown due to their old age… The mountains were asleep, and for the time being, tender beams of rising sun could not wake them up.
