Tuesday the 26th. Started quite early. Three miles from camp is a very steep hill to descent and a large branch to cross at the foot of it. Down this branch 10 miles, passed through a canyon, grass, water and wood plenty. The road left the branch for one or two miles in this distance. Coming into the valley we found a new road, took it and crossed the branch and left Ft. Hall to the right some 7 miles. This was on account of the road being washed away. This new road is some nearer and very good, but it is 10 miles without water or grass to Ft. Neuf River. Crossed and camped after a drive of 25 miles.
