Description No garden, no trees, nothing but rock and sand to look at till our eyes rested on the mountains in the distance. The house stood on a slight elevation above the plain, and was inhabited by an aged pair who were wearing out the evening of their days in comfortless desolation. They had a fire burning on the wide hearth in the mud-and-log-walled cabin, and we went in to warm ourselves.

I listened to the wind which howled round the cabin as if it were a ship in a gale, while my husband good-humoredly grati- fied the old man's curiosity. When we left the house the sun had dispersed the clouds, and the icy wind came from mountains bright with fresh-fallen snow. The sunshine was so brilliant, too, that the glare was un- bearable, and the absence of coloring, except staring white and blue, increased the feeling I had of being at sea with a brisk north-wester blowing. Hurrying into our carriages, we buried ourselves in the furs and prepared for an uninteresting afternoon. But we were not done with violent effects of color.
