Thursday June 30th. Fine morning this. Made quite an early start. Six miles ahead is a fine branch of good water. 2 miles farther is greasewood creek. Good water, grass scarce, sage for fuel. To alkali grounds 6 miles. Lakes of alkili on both sides of the road. Water and grass both very poisonous. After this we crossed a dry branch, and 2 miles due west of this we found good grass and water and camped.
