Here are a couple of shots. The first is of the monastery itself. While we were there, a family that had driven from Yerevan had a memorial ceremony for a relative who had recently passed away.
The second is of Ararat and Masis (a.k.a. pokr Ararat or "little Ararat") with Khor Virop in the foreground as if a sentinel.
Between the two lies the Arax River which separates Turkey from Armenia and Armenians from their heritage. My friend Raffi has more interesting pictures and the story of Khor Virop.
