The gloomy and misty draft does not effect the heavenly beauty.
The moist air effects the way you think and feel about nature.
The plants and trees are native in itself.
The spreading vine of honeysuckle is making the atmosphere have a heavenly scent.
Your last glimpse of this place will give you a moment of glory and fame.
