This view of the Catskills was taken from the top of the Balsam Mountain Fire Tower. 

 

Morris Longstreth's description of
our mountains
: "...they lack awe-inspiring peaks sculpted by deep ravines...their inherent beauty resides very little in their measurements, but in the serene sweep of their slopes, the harmony of their contours, and the appeal of their covering, whether it be forest, rock, or snow."
