Monday 20th. Quite cool yet this morning, hail stones lying around our tents. Reached La Bonta by 2 o’clock, distance of 10 miles. Four miles this side is Red Bank creek, a good camp, good water, fuel plenty, and grass by going over the bluffs, to the right one mile. The roads have been very bad to-day. One would think these were the Black Hills if we had never seen nor heard of them before passing through them. It has been up one and down another all day long, scarcely a level place large enough to lock the wagon on.
