September 22, 1853

Thursday 22nd. This morning 8 of our cattle were gone, one of ours and 7 of Mr. Swick’s. Found all except one, started on and found him about noon. The road is very rough to-day over roots and rocks winding its way through the dense timber. Passed the summit of the mountains today. Drove within 3 miles of Summit Prairie and camped on a fine creek, cut browse for our cattle, no grass.
