People go there seeking beauty, and peace. Yet they rarely stop at a ridge along the main drive, off to the right of the first serious curve, where beauty is nearer and so is peace; where a short, quiet walk through leafy, hilly woods leads to a steep drop; and where, as a result, looking out is just as glorious as looking up.

You can even see the sunset.
