44 - Mountain Valley - End of Volume I

The prospect before us was wide and varied
Swelling hills and verdant vales
extending from the river
towards a chain of lofty mountains
We crossed the stream and were
soon surrounded by desert.

"Look beyond the toilsome way
to those grand mountains
whose spurs are already stretching
forward to meet us.
What pleasant surprises
await us
amid their steep declivities."
