"The beauty of the South Park is doubly impressed on the mind by the sudden and unexpected manner in which the whole scene bursts upon the view [when approaching the Park from the North]. While
ascending a slight rise the traveller is looking directly in front, thinking that he sees the mountain tops on the opposite side of the Park, when the road turns to the right around a hill, and the whole scene is
unexpectedly spread out before him."
