View looking west over the top of Lystra at the 7,500 ft. [2300 m.] high mountains of the Erenler Dagi that block routes from proceeding due west from Lystra. Indeed traffic was diverted north to Iconium before it headed west through a pass in these mountains.
This picture was taken in early January — note the snow-covered peaks.
