Monday August 1st. Drove 7 miles this morning and came to Snake River again. No feed again here, nothing but sage covers the face of this Broad Plain. We watered here and started again and of all the rock roads, this day’s travel is the worst and dust too dense to speak of, for our stock and ourselves are choked almost to suffocation. We followed down the river for 12 miles and came to Rock creek, where we found some good spring water (a luxury) and camped, grass very scarce. Drove 19 miles.
