A Midsummer Drive Through The Pyrenees vol-75
"In fortune's empire blindly thus we go;
We wander after pathless destiny,
Whose dark resorts since prudence cannot know,
In vain it would provide for what shall be."


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.
