Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 5, page 121, December 31, 1852

Description: Describes a visit to Buttermilk Falls with Edward Heylyn.


the river was swollen, and they came down roaring and tumbling into the 80 feet chasm with very picturesque fury. Down below, whither we clambered, was a perfect forest and thicket of ice-covered trees, a frozen wood, each branch and twig encased and imprisoned, huge boughs bound down to the ice-hid rocks on which they grew. I never saw or imagined aught so beautiful in the wintry way. The stream all brawling and chafing with rocks flowed between these [word crossed out] minor Arctic forests. Made a sketch of it. Afterwards in the ruined houses adjacent. Back, drying, feeding, eating, drinking, cardplaying fumigating &c. Bed about 11.
