Dark, narrow glens
farms and homesteads
Ammi Pierce's cottage
"West of Arkham the hills rise wild, and there are valleys with deep woods that no axe has ever cut."
"The place is not good for imagination, and does not bring restful dreams at night."
"No traveler has ever escaped a sense of strangeness in those deep ravines, and artists shiver as they paint thick woods whose mystery is as much of the spirits as of the eye." -- The Colour Out of Space
"I think we screamed ourselves as we stumbled frantically toward the town, though as we reached the outskirts we put on a semblance of restraint--just enough to seem like belated revellers staggering home from a debauch." -- Herbert West: Reanimator
