William and Maymie Kimes Annotation

""In the mountains of San Gabriel overlooking the lowland vines and fruit groves, mother Nature is most ruggedly, thornly savage .... But in the very heart of this thorny wilderness, down in the dells, you may find gardens filled with the fairest flowers ... where the ouzel builds its mossy hut and sings in chorus with the white falling water."" It was here, near a pool of water, that Muir discovered that he was standing over a rattlesnake that had a ""bashful look in his eye.""
