“The jagged circle of the lake spread out beneath me in the most unspeakably pure ultramarine blue I’d ever seen… I could feel the lake’s power. It seemed a shock in the midst of this great land: inviolable, separate and alone, as if it had always been and would always be there, absorbing every color of visible light but blue.”
