I have a friend who lives in Switzerland. Last summer I went ot stay with her. Her home is located in a remote and pretty little town surrounded by beautiful scenery. The house is beside a river, with snow-topped mountains rising in the distance beyond.

Hi,

For a start, is "snow-topped" in the above equal to "snow-covered?"

Second, does "rising in the distance beyond" amount to "rising high up in the distance?" Thanks.

1-- Snow-topped has snow just on the top; snow-covered has snow all down the slopes as well.
2-- The words high up add an element not in the original.

Thanks, Mister.

Then how should I view "rising in the distance beyond" correctly?
