"Washing clothes on a survey"

May 2nd We have a long walk to go to work today and have some difficulty in finding where we left off, but we scatter over the ground keeping in yelling distance of each other in the dense undergrowth and at 11.30 come on the place when we halt for lunch then proceed down a canyon into a valley with a no of little lakes in it. and as one or two are frozen solid we call the valley "Frozen Lake valley".

Quite a no of bears seem to be at work here: but don't see any actually at work. A few hunters come up here trapping in summer
