"Everywhere is wild, rich beauty, so restful, so lovely, that one turns with regret from each bridge or footpath, feeling that no where can there be equally beautiful scenes and tempting vistas. Beware how you promise yourself or others to spend a day in this most beautiful spot, for during the summer the twilight does not sink into deeper darkness, but it slowly melts into the rosy brightness of morning. The daylight lingers as if its tender care were needed to watch over such perfect loveliness!"
Bushrod Washington James - 1897
