Mt Elbrus - Photo by Scott WagnerWe have been blessed by a cartographer's decision in the 1890s that deemed the Caucasus Mountains the north / south dividing line between Europe and Asia. Mt. Elbrus, a lovely 18,586' glaciated twin summit, lies just three miles north of the Caucasus mountain divide and is therefore the highest mountain in Europe.
