It is true that these charming creatures constitute a serious menace for many a mountaineer, often diverting him from his ideals and aims. But undertand myself well enough to know just how far the influence of the female sex was likely to get a hold on me. Just at that moment, when I happened to be a temporary invalid, I could think of no more pleasant way of spending the time than to go about in amiable association with a pretty girl.
That did not prevent the Mountains from remaining the Law of my life.
