ALL CREATION — Catskill Mountains, New York
The glittering line of the Hudson River at dawn, as seen from the jagged cliffs of the Escarpment. From this point James Fenimore Cooper‘s Leatherstocking (Natty) fancied he could see “all creation.”
“But the place I mean is next to the river, where one of the ridges juts out a little from the rest, and where the rocks fall, for the best part of a thousand feet, so much up and down, that a man standing on their edges is fool enough to think he can jump from top to bottom.”
“What do you see when you get there?” asked Edwards.
“Creation,” said Natty, dropping the end of his rod into the water, and sweeping one hand around him in a circle: “all creation, lad.”
