"A whole Petra was there, a system of projecting prisms, pyramids, and pagoda
towers, a variety of form that enabled you to see whatever your peculiar vanity might be;
columns, porticoes, facades, and pedestals."
Richard Burton 1860
"A little below this [Winged Rocks], are the 'Kettle Rocks' huge gray looking
boulders, nearly to the top of the ledge, looking like immense caldron kettles. Behind
them are some sharp-pointed projections like spires."
Henry T. Williams 1876
