In poetry:

Springs trickle down dark cliffs, and autumn
Dew fills ridgeline grasses. My hair seems
Whiter in lamplight. The flame flickers
Good fortune over and over — and for what?
"Day's End" by Du Fu

In science:

The main ridgeline of stars extending up to KS ≈ 11 is the red giant and asymptotic giant (AGB) sequence of the intermediate-age and old stellar population.
An Upper Limit to the Age of the Galactic Bar
The final set of Sgr candidates in this field concentrate near this ridgeline; most of the scatter about the isochrone is likely due to the ±5 kpc line-of-sight depth of the Sgr stream as well as the intrinsic population dispersion in Sgr.
Kinematics and Chemistry of Stars Along the Sagittarius Trailing Tidal Tail and Constraints on the Milky Way Mass Distribution
After an initial calculation of the mean motion, candidates that were obviously inconsistent with a broadlyde fined region ( &0.3 magnitudes in Hg and/or g - r) about the ridgeline were manually removed from the sample.

However, the MSTO of such an old population is beyond the magnitude limit of our propermotion survey.17 The RPMD (Figure 13) for SA 93 shows the same ridgeline as in the CMD, shifted by the final measured tangential velocity for the Sgr candidates.

Again, the ridgelines of the high-frequency images tend to lie on top of the lower frequency ridge-lines, except for the 15 GHz image ridge-line that deviates significantly from the 1.6 GHz ridge-line far from the core.
