A Midsummer Drive Through The Pyrenees vol-82
A Trip To The Pyrenees Is Not In The Grand Tour. It Is Not Even In Any
Southerly Extension Of The Grand Tour. A Proposition To Exploit Them
Meets A Dubious Reception. Pictures Arise Of Desolate Gorges; Of Lonely
Roads And Dangerous Trails; Of Dismal Roadside Inns, Where, When You
Halt For The Night, A "Repulsive-Looking Landlord Receives The Unhappy
Man, Exchanges A Look Of Ferocious Intelligence With The Driver,"--And
The Usual Melodramatic Midnight Carnage Probably Ensues. The Pyrenees
Seem To Echo The Motto Of Their Old Counts, "_Touches-Y, Si Tu L'oses_!"
The Name Seems To Stand Vaguely For Untested Discomforts, For Clouds And
Chasms, And Spanish Banditti In Blood-Red _Capas_; To Be, In A Word, A
Symbol Of An Undiscovered Country Which Would But Doubtfully Reward A
Resolve To Discover.
