Hello: In the following sentence I'm not sure about the meaning of "the shadow had advanced up the opposite slope":

"The day was cooling down, and the shadow of the west ridge had advanced up the opposite slope and shaded half the town"

Does it mean that by the time the west ridge was casting its shadow on the east ridge (the town is widged within a valley). Thank you

    It seems to be talking about the passage of time through a description of the shadow caused by the sun moving
