Saturday July 9th. Arrived at Little Sandy at sunrise this morning. Passed Dry Sandy 9 miles from Pacific Springs and the Junction of California and Salt Lake road 7 miles from Dry Sandy. Stopped at Little Sandy and had breakfast. No grass here. Drove on to Big Sandy 5 miles farther and camped for the day, to let our cattle rest for crossing the Desert which commences here at Big Sandy. Drove 3 miles down this stream and found good grass.
