Perhaps it's the fact that by the time you reach the top you're so out of breath that your date thinks you're panting insatiably. Or maybe it's the panoramic city view that takes your breath away and leaves you gasping still: Oh, that winding river, those city lights, those house-speckled hills. This mountaintop right in the heart of the city has been the site of many a kiss by lovers young and old, not to mention quite a few proposals and even weddings. It's a real high point for any relationship.
