The Appeal Of The Canyon Is As Strong As The "Call
Of The Wild," And That Man Or Woman Needing
Quiet is wisest who yields to
the call, and yields often, going to the Canyon in perfect faith that it
Has within itself recuperative powers which it is ready to give in full
measure to those who are in need.
Ways in Which to Recuperate. To those who recuperate best by contact with
Nature out-of-doors, the suggestions contained in the chapters devoted to
the various outing trips will be useful. Those who wish to lounge and rest,
surrounded without by all the sublimity of this unequalled scene, and
within by all the comforts and luxuries of a modern hotel, will find that
the Grand Canyon absolutely satisfies their most exacting demands. Easy and
gentle drives, with perfect equipment; over forest roads, in the restfully
stimulating atmosphere of Arizona, at an elevation of nearly seven thousand
feet, soothe tired brain and nerves. More vigorous horseback exercises,
taken through the park-like glades and reaches of the Coconino Forest,
produce perfect digestion and the restfulness of dreamless sleep. The sun
tans you. You breathe a pure, thin air, laden with scent of pine and cedar.
Your lungs expand, your muscles harden. Soon you are "fit for a king."
The Mecca of the Traveling World. There are many canyons, but the Grand
Canyon of Arizona is the Mecca of the traveling world; and El Tovar always
has the housing of the choice spirits who have run the gamut of tourist
delights in other lands.
