July 29th. Packed grub from Divide some of the others making a trail towards Buttles Lake; most inconvenient working with my sore fingers every time I make a grab at a twig they start to bleed again.

July 30th. Take a load ahead to Buttles Lake; and come back empty we have to drop 3000 ft between our present camp and Buttles in 3 miles; which is quite a hill to get down & up;
