Great Saints had there landscapes of prayer, as we do. We are all nature mystics. It is not sentimental or foolish romanticism. It is Life. The Experience of the landscape in poetry by Shelley or Keats or that of a farmer or North American Indian is all one experience of the contact that enriches prayer. It is no wonder that natural places have always been sought out  for prayer.
