August 5, 1853

Friday 5th. Drive 3 miles this morning down a long, steep hill, came to the river again, no grass here. We watered and drove around through a valley about 3 miles and came to a small dry branch, followed up it and found two good springs. One mile farther we came to a small branch, rather bad to cross. This is close to the river. Three miles farther is Salmon Creek. One mile up this we found some grass. Camped here. Drove 10 miles today.
