Saturday August 13th. We had a long hill to climb this morning and a very rocky one. It is almost useless to attempt to describe the road on this part of the trip. For several days we have had little else but rocks to travel over and it looks no better ahead. Mountains and hills rise up before us and when we get on the top of one we see another ahead still higher. Seven miles from camp we come to another creek, not much grass, 8 miles farther are 3 fine springs branches. Here we camped again having good feed. Drove 15 miles today.
