Excerpt from A Subaltern's Furlough, Vol. 2 of 2: Descriptive of Scenes in Various Parts of the United States, Upper and Lower Canada, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia, During the Summer and Autumn of 1832
Proceeding to the village of Cayuga, situated near the northern extremit... y of a lake of the same name, we em barked ia a steamer which plies upon the lake, and crossed to the opposite side, touching for some more pas. Sengers at a village connected with Cayuga by a bridge exceeding a mile in length, over which the western road passes. The extreme length of the lake is 40 miles by 2 at its greatest breadth. The scenery is tame and nu interesting, until towards the southern end, when it as sumes a more pleasing appearance, the banks becoming high and craggy in some places, and in others cultivated to the waters's edge. But throughout there is an over powering quantity of dense forest, with an intervening space of eight or ten miles between villages. For the last few miles, the face of the country presented a sin. Gular appearance, being broken every hundred yards, or thereabouts. With narrow and deep ravines, formed by the heavy rush of water from the hills in the spring of the year. In some, the rock was rugged and bare; in others the grass had sprung up again, or, where the ground more easily yielded to the force of the torrent, there were long and heavy undulations, like the swelling of the sea.
