Mountain Scenes in Western North Carolina, 1919

The Eagle, Cherryville, N.C., August 7, 1919

Wonderful Mountain Scenes

Here is some fine rhetoric from a Burnsville Correspondent to the Toe River Herald:

“There seems at this season an alluring charm all out of doors. We go forth upon a mountain climb and watch the distant peaks rise up as we ascend. Passing through tangles of laurel, ferns and wonderful flowers which we are sure no one has ever seen the like, we reach the summit where it seems all creation to spread out before us, the dark blue heights of the distant peaks outlined above, the clouds below.

We are sure that of all wonderful scenes and the artful works of man, there is none to compare with the mountain scenes of Western North Carolina.”
