Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.

also there is a Russian meme: ‘We do not seek for the easy ways”. The snail in question does not. (:

As we gathered for the hike above Shushi (photo 16), I was mesmerized watching this fellow slowly, painstakingly, successfully make it across this hurdle. My first thought was curiosity that he chose to go up and over, rather than going around. But then I wondered if I would have noticed him at all if he was just easily slinking underneath the metal fence like it was no big deal. Instead, I watched his entire journey until he was no longer visible on the other side of the wall, just as our hike was ready to depart.
It’s worth noting, perhaps, that this guy would have nearly filled the palm of my hand. I had never before seen (land) snails as large as those I saw in Armenia and Artsakh.
