In every part of the world where mountains occur there are either existing deposits of snow on the summits descending by their weight and forming glaciers and ice streams, or there are palpable evidences that such has been the case in geological epochs long gone by. The mode in which this force operates differs materially, according to the nature of the strata, the elevation, the angle of the slope, the character of the outline, the distance from the sea, and other adventitious circumstances. From this arises the great difference of character in the mountain scenery of different countries. The conical aspect of the mountains of Switzerland, upheaved at particular points, presents phenomena materially differing from the snow-crowned mountain ridges of Norway, separated by long narrow fiords, ploughed down their sides by glaciers in full action, from which spring innumerable torrents, leaping, sparkling, and giving life and animation to the scene. The mountainous district on the Elbe, called the Saxon Switzerland, anciently subjected to ice action, has features differing from both the above. The strata here being of friable composition, and to a great extent soluble in water, have given peculiar features to the landscape not found elsewhere. The features of the Merioneth and Montgomeryshire mountains partake somewhat of the character of both the Swiss and Norwegian types. The Berwyn range, which extends in an irregular line from south-west to north-east, commences near the mouth of the River Dovey, rising at various points to the height of 2,100 to nearly 3,000 feet, finally subsiding into the valley of the Dee, near Chirk.
