3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 of 9.600 ft.     while its other end rests upon a spur of the Den
du Midi (10.800 ft high)     The old castle and a small
fortification well across the river effectually guard this narrow
passage.        Above castle is the entrance to a stalactite
cavern, the Grotte aus Vees,  two miles long,  but I had not time to
explore it.        Back through the compact old village chiefly
consisting of one street with short narrow branches,   dividing the space
between the high perpendicular cliffs upon the right, and the rapid
Rhone and ad-
joining mountains
upon the left
St Maurice is
named after the
Roman comman-
der St Maurice
who according to
tradition was
murderd [sic] here in     [-St Maurice , and the Dent du Midi-]
