The mountains are behind what? There are several instances like this throughout the lessons.

does 'se trouvent' translate as 'can be found' or 'are found'?

I believe it would've used an article (le or la) to describe "it" if that were the case.

in this case, le/la are not articles but personal pronouns, in the object form, matching il/elle

I don't even know what I was replying to anymore! Haha but I do see what you mean gramatically. Thank you for explaining that!
