The following two days Anneli and Castor walked towards the northern mountains. Despite passing several people on the way, the passers-by only gave them suspicious states and nothing more.
As they walked closer to the mountain Castor realised, despite what he had expected the northern mountain was not a mountain but a dormant volcano with a flat top instead of a peak. It was early afternoon when they reached the base of the mountain. They had been walking for several hours and Anneli was tired so they decided to rest and climb the mountain the following day.
