    a hill rose to its peak

    Hi. I wonder does it really make sense "a hill rose to its peak"? I mean every peak actually rises to its peak whatever its height is, doesn't it? Thank you.

    The writer is painting a picture with words. We say lots of things that aren't really necessary sometimes.
