ahead. Our packers are gone for grub. See lots of sign of deer & bear in this valley so I hope to get lots of fresh meat from now on.

June 16th.

June 17th. Very dull and cloudy today so stay in camp all day, do some mending and darning; also collect some botanical matter.

June 18th. Today we start for a glacier
