OCEAN VIEW. This view is obtained from the
front of the Inn, and there are few outlooks so
extensive. It must be seen to be appreciated.
Many mornings you can see the clouds below cover-
ing the valley and distance so you can well imagine you
are looking over the ocean.
UPON THE SUMMIT PLATEAU, one-half mile
from the observation tower, is Salola Inn. The
automobile highway winds through the grounds
and affords easy access at all times.
BEING 2000 FEET ABOVE THE SURROUND-
ING VALLEYS AND MOUNTAIN FOR-
ESTS, the view from Salola Inn extends to the
horizon. This unexcelled panorama of land and sky
is ever changing in colorful hues from sunrise to sun-
set. The camera cannot record these expansive views
as the eyes can see them.
SPACIOUS PORCHES, SHADY LAWNS, AND
EXCELLENT ATHLETIC COURTS offer
guests of Salola Inn a congenial environment
for rest and recreation.
MR. AND MRS. JOHN AUGUSTUS HOOKS
cordially receive their many friends who visit
Sugar Loaf Mountain and its many famous
points of national tourist attraction. Afternoon re-
ceptions at Salola Inn bring together friends and
guests from all parts of the South and North.
AMID THE PRE-EMINENCE OF ENORMOUS
ROCK FORMATIONS LIE THE MOST
FERTILE OF GARDENS producing vege-
tables and fruits of superior quality to the products
of the lowlands. Salola Inn is truly a country home
of the highest type. Its cuisine is characteristic of its
COMFORT-RATHER THAN LUXURY. RE-
FINEMENT-MORE THAN ELEGANCE-is
the appeal of Salola Inn to those who seek a
resort distinctive for the summer vacation.
Nature has provided this life-giving atmosphere.
Rest, sleep and relaxation come naturally to the tired
mind and body after each day spent on Sugar Loaf
ERVICE is the keynote of satisfied guests at Sa~
lola Inn. No expense is spared to make this the
summer resort premier in every respect.
BSERVATION TOWER-commanding a view
of from 20 to 40 miles in every direction.
SQUIRREL ROCK. A fine piece of Mountain
Granite among so many Massiv r e Rocks, tor which
this whole mountain is noted. Each point is of
interest and within easy walking distance of the Inn.
SUMMIT OF SUGAR LOAF MOUNTAIN
FROM CASTLE ROCK. A climb to this point
will be well worth the effort. From here you may
overlook the vast expanse of valley and mountain ranges,
piled one behind another, till the distant ones are lost to
view, being beyond the range of human vision.
A 35-foot tower is to be erected on its highest point,
and will command a magnificent view of the country in
CLOVEN CLIFF. To sit on this ledge, on a warm
afternoon, with a book "or its equivalent" and
drink in the life-giving breeze, which constantly
brings new life and health, is the acme of good luck.

place from which to watch the sun set; the whole
western sky often being a galaxy of gorgeous
coloring, seldom seen in any other locality.

seems an almost endless number,of interesting
places about Sugar Loaf Mountain.

ASTLE ROCK. A piece of Nature's handiwork,
built to stand the ages.
ALOLA BLUFF. A mighty atom in this inspiring
locality, where one can only look and wonder.

Asheville, showing Bear Wallow, Mt. Mitchell
and the Pisgah Range.
HE PINNACLES. A rough and tumble spot to
ramble through and to enjoy.
THE WINDOWS," near Bear Pen Cliff, a
peculiar formation giving the impression of
windows in"a house.
EAR PEN CLIFF. From the top of this you
overlook the whole of Hickory Nut Gap.

SHIP ROCK. Another sample of nature's freaks,
and interesting as all things in these mountains are
when untouched by the hand of man.
After a trip through this wild and rugged scenery
and gazing at these massive cliffs, one is impressed by
the stupendous forces embodied in these rocks, and the
smallness of each human atom, so well expressed in the
'"Infidel, who in thy finite wisdom
Woulds't grasp things infinite and dost become
A scoffer of God's holiest mysteries,
Tremble, Tremble and Rejoice;
Tremble, for He who formed this mighty mass
Could in his judgment, crush thee where thou art
Rejoice! that still His mercy spares thee."
