GRAPHIC DESCRIPTION OF THE VIEW
FROM LONG'S PEAK ,
A Landscape No Painter Can Put Upon
Canvas , No Words Fully Express-Trem
hung With Fear at the Stupendous
Scene-Anna Dickinson's Card.
All lovers of mountain scenery hav
ing a few days' time at their disposal
must make a flying trip to Estes park ,
the most beautiful and inviting of all
Colorado parks , but not the largest. It
is only six miles wide by ten miles long ,
. through which ran several streams , filled
with "speckled beauties , " so much
sought for by skilled anglers. At the
south end of the park rises Long's peak
in all its majesty and grandeur , with a
sentinel on either side nearly equal its
height. The altitude of the park is
We leave our wheels at the hotel and
drive up to Lamb's ranch , where we
spem1 the night at an olcvation of 10.-
At sunrise the tlext morning , mounted -
ed on horseback , with an experienced
guide in the lead , we ride up to timber
line , where we picket our horses and
I commence the climb of the bowlder
j fields , necessitating much courage and
I determination , as these bowlders are
. angular rocks of solid granite and run
in size from a chicken coop to a mod.
em dwelling. In the center of this bowl-
dor field was passed the slab ecording the
death of Carrie Welton of Connecticut ,
who a few years since unwisely insisted -
ed upon the guide accompanying her to
the peak too late in the season. When
returning , they were caught in a severe
gale and blinding storm. After suffer-
fag as only one can suffer when surrounded -
rounded by that intense loneliness , stung
by the pangs of cold and cravings of huu-
ger , ] nor life was sacrificed. The trusty
guide for hours made supernatural efforts -
forts to carp her over those almost impassable -
passable rocks until , at her request , he
left her to bring a rescuing party from
the ranch , which upon arrival found
Following the guide , we pass through
an opening called the "keyhole" and
emerge beside an unwelcome precipice.
We carefully pick our way along the
brink , which requires all our nerve and
resolution , but yet is not as tiresome us
the loose sand and broken rock , rising
at an incline of 45 degrees , just beyond.
By perseverance and an occasional rest
we are enabled to reach that ugly precipice -
pico on our right ; and by using both
hands and feet we make the summit ,
where we stand speechless with wondr"
and admiration. Hard as it was
would stake the same heroic effort a
hundred times were it necessary to witness -
ness the grand scone before us.
Nearly 8 , 000 feet below is Estes park ,
the sportsman's paradise ; to the west is
Middle park and Hot Sulphur Springs ;
to the south South park. Beyond these
peaks we see the range for a distance of
over 200 miles. With the aid of our
glasses we discern Gray's peak , Mount
Lincoln , Mount Evans , Pike's peak and
Old Ouray in Idarshall pass , some of
which are 200 miles distant. What a
scene it is ! What an ocean of mountain
billows , in constrat to which we turn
to the east and see an ocean of plains-
the one as quiet as the peaceful sea in a
calm , the other as tempestuous as the
Never was time more valuable than
now. So much to ho seen. Such a pie-
turo to paint in our minds so that it may
never fade. Think of making this im
pression indelibly upon one's mind ,
covering this panoramic view of 200
miles in either direction of plains , valleys -
leys , parks and mountains , of growing
fields of wheat and far distant cities , of
snow capped mountains , of magnicent
forests and tlnystal streams.
Again and again we sweep the horizon -
zen and study a landscape no painter
can paint , no speech can express. Before
returning we must look at the souvenir
deposits of visitors. Here is a shingle by
Major Powell , who , with William N.
Byres , was the first to make the ascent
in 1808. Here is Anna Dickinson's card ,
the firstwomtm to ascend the peak , also
of the part * who climbed the peak in
1878 to witness the total eclipse , together -
gether with thousands of visitors' carci5.
The top of the peak is level , covering
a few acres , and we wonder that a house
has not been built there for the accommodation -
modation of these who might wish o
remain overnight and see the sun rise.
Before returning we must take one look
over the crater wall , which has a per.
pendicnlar ( lescent of 3,000 feet. How
tervonsly w approach the edge , step
by step , until our strength fails us and
tvo can go no farther.
Trembling with fear , we return from
this stupendous scene , bewildered with
mixed feelings of pleasure and fear. Before -
fore making the descent we take a final
view , the like of which we shall never
again see. We retrace our steps , and
having paned the most dangerous
places courage is restored , and we reach
the park after nightfall so tired and
with such a longing for our couch , but
with the feeling that we wonidsacrifice
anything reasonable rather than deny
ourselves to Long's peak , but having
once made it nothing would tempt us
to climb it again.-Edward B. Light
in Good Roads.

I am out of debt , and thanks to the
Dish Washer business for it. In the
