Monday, June 11th, we lay in camp all
day, waiting our turn to cross the river.
It was very tedious crossing with the
large ox teams. There was a young man
by the name of James Brown, from
Howard county, Missouri, drowned in
Oo Tuesday, June 12th, we crossed
the river at 10 o'clock, and drove two
miles up the river and stopped for noon.
We traveled then twenty miles, and
■topped for the night at Mineral Springs.
We made Gamp 39 on Wednesday,
Jane 13th, then took an early start, tra
veled sixteen miles, and nooned at
Willow Springs. We crossed three
streams of running water and passed
Prospect Hill. We had to cross
some swampy ground; got two
teams mired down; dug them
out; had some good road; made good
time; came to Sweetwater, one mile be
low Independence Rock, where _we
camped, having traveled thirty-eight
miles. Camp 40 was pitched on Thurs
day, June 14th, after passing Independ
ence Rock. This is one of nature's won
ders. It is two miles in circumference
and seventy-five feet high, disconnected
from all other similar formations, lying
in a level plain. A half mile above we
crossed the* Sweetwater, a deep stream
of ice-cold water coming from the snows
of the Rocky mountains. Six miles
from the crossing of the Sweetwater is
Devil's Gate. The road passes between
two high cliffs], and but a short distance
to the right the river rushes through a
cleft in the rock, the sides of which are
400 feet high, with perpendicular sides.
Why this should be called the Devil*
Gate I am at a loss to know, for had this
pass not been made I see no way the
country beyond could have been reached.
It may be the Old Boy expects to get
those who pass this place. It is cer
tainly a most romantic place. It
has a smooth, level wagon road
a few yards wide, with walls
of perpendicular sides of smooth rocks
towering to the clouds on either side,
and with the roaring of a river as its
waters dashed over the rocks through a
gorge still more wild a few rods away.
We were inside or beyond the Devil's
Gate. To our right was the Sweetwater.
From its northern bank rises the rockiest,
steepest and highest peaks of the Rocky
mountains. We had no means of ascer
taining their height, but it takes two
looks to get to the top of some of the
peaks. To our left for a few hundred
yards was bottom land, covered with a
short grass called buffalo grass. Then
commences a gradual rise. First, grease
wood and stunted sagebrush; further on
the sagebrush becomes almost trees in
size, many being four to six inches
through and five to seven feet high.
The rise continues until far away to the
south the rugged mountain sides appear,
and still beyond the snow-capped peaks.
After traveling some six and a half miles
up the river, we turned to the left across
rolling lands, cut by several small
streams rushing to the right, where their
waters enter the Sweetwater. After
traveling over considerable heavy sand,
we found a camping place on reaching
the river, having traveled twenty-five
Gamp 41 was made on Friday, June
15th. Our experience the night before
was anything but pleasant. I arrived at
the river before dark, and finding a great
crowd of campers and but little chance for
grass on the side of the river we were
traveling on, I saw there was a bottom
on the opposite side where the grasß was
good, there being no stock on that side
of the river. On examination, I saw the
river run near a point of the rocks. Then
for a half mile it flowed along the bot
torn, and came to the perpendicular
bluff below, making a corral of several
hundred acres of most luxuriant feed,
bounded on one side by the river and on
the other side by a perpendicular wall
of rock that the mules could not cross.
It was quite dark when the wagons came
up, so I explained the situation, that the
only show for feed was to cross over the
stream, which was about fifty feet wide
and deep enough to swim the smallest
of the mules. The Tennessee boys had
a large black horse, and knowing the
mules would follow him the boys soon
had them unharnessed, and by forcing
the horse across the mules all followed
Having gathered some drift-wood before
the wagons arrived, I soon had a good
fire and supper in a short time. The
guards took their stations, one above the
camp and the other below on the river.
Being in the midst of the Crow Indiana'
territory and seeing none of them along
the road, but seeing their signal fires at
night, we knew it was necessary to keep
a close look-out of nights. Having a hard
day's travel all but the two on guard
were soon wrapped up in their blankets
sleeping soundly. It was but a short
time, however, until the guard above
on the river came rushing into camp
with the news that the mules were cross
ing tbe river on to the plains and sage
brash lands to the south. It took less
time to gather guns and start for the
place designated than it does to write
abou it; all feeling satisfied there must
be Indians after them or they would
never have crossed the river.
After reconnoitering for some time and
making careful examination for hoof
tracks, we came to the conclusion there
must be Rome mistake, so we returned
to our blankets, after admonishing the
guard that we wanted no more fahe
alarms. While we approved of his
coarse in calling us out, it was anything
bat pleasant to leave one's warm bed o
a cold night unless there were Indians to
We had Hot been in bed an hour,
juet long enough to get comfortably
warm and in a deep sleep, until the same
guard came rnshinginto camp saying the
males were crossing the mountain. Here
was a dilemma. No chance to get there
except to cross the ice-cold stream. As
Major Lane and myself were first ready ,
we dashed into the river. We found it
just up to oar arm-pita. (The freezing of
the streams that flow from the snow
banks as night comes on causes the river
to fall, and it was not as deep at that
time, 11 o'clock, as when the males
crossed over.) Sy holding our guns and
pistols over oar heads, we kept them
dry. I knew it would be impossible for
THE Los AH GALES DAILY HEKALD; MONDAY MOKNING, FEBRUARY 24 1890.
the mules to cross the mountains, that i
the only thing they could do might be to
cross a point at the upper end oi the i
corral, where the rock projecting to the i
river did not look to be over fifteen or
twenty feet high, and if forced over, that
they would get into a bottom above on
the same side of the river. We
cautiously approached that point, and
after listening and hearing no sounds
from beyond we clambered over this
point, which we did with difficulty, feel
ing satisfied no mule would voluntarily
cross here, and doubting their ability to
do so if pursued by Indians. But to make
sure we examined carefully for tracks.
Finding none we retraced our steps, and
concluded we would seek those mules
that had been the cause of so much
anxiety. After floundering around
among the yellow sand and high grass,
we came to the herd. Some were feed
ing around, others were lying down, rest
ing quietly. All appeared quite surprised
to see us at this time of night. The next
thing was to take another cold bath,
crossing the river. When we got back
the next thing was to account for the
deception practiced on our guards. We
knew it was no practical joke, and there
was no man in camp who would
be less likely to raise the camp
than he. His courage could never
be doubted under any circumstances.
He was one of Colonel Donaphan's
soldiers who had crossed the plains to
join General Taylor in Mexico! It was
a matter of too much interest to be
treated lightly, so the middle and last
guard were doubled by throwing out a
picket guard. Finally morning came,
the mules were secured all right, and we
were soon on the road, among the greatest
crowd of teams «c had come to yet. AH
were rushing to see who could get to the
summit of the Rocky mountains first.
Representatives from all parts of the
United States can be seen here. One
can locate with reasonable certainty the
place the party comes from by the style
of whip used to drive the team of oxen.
If a stick from five to six feet long with
a spike in the end is used, called a gad,
that fellow is from New England—most
likely from the pineries of Maine. If a
short handle, say eighteen to twenty
four inches, with a long lash, such
as is used by drovers, you may feel
sure you are amongst men from the
Middle States. If a long pole or
stalk, Bay ten to fifteen feet,
with a thong or lash still
longer, is used—the noise of which is
equal to a pistol—you may know there
are Illinoisans, Miesourians, or some
other Western States fellows around.
I recollect in crossing through Illinois
in 1839, of my father questioning a fel
low about the country. He was turning
over the sod with a team of five or six
yoke of cattle. In reply to my father's
question he said: "Well, stranger, I
guess this is a pretty good country, least
wise it is good for men and dogs, but it
is hell on women and oxen—go on there,
Buck ; whoa,haw, Darby," and the fellow
let off a whirl of that long lash that re
sounded over the prairie like the crack
of a gun. This slashing and cutting to
get in the front before reaching the Rocky
mountains reminds me of those big
teams ploughing up the prairies through
the West. I wondered how long it would
be before the fine lands we had traveled
over would be settled, and in place of
the sneaking, thieving, blood-thirsty In
dians, a prosperous, happy, intelligent
race occupy them.
From our last starting point we trav
eled eight miles up the bottom, then we
had to leave the river, as it ran through
a deep gorge. There was much very
heavy sand that day. On reaching the
Sweetwater we drove a few miles so as to
leave the great gang of teams
that we knew would go into
camp at the first chance
of water and some grass. The number
of teams passed and now behind us
since leaving the States was 7,304
There were possibly half that many still
ahead, and from all we could gather as
we came on —counting those on the bor
der of Missouri, in Jackson county, and
those outfittiug about St. Joe, and those
coming by the way of Council Bluffs—
we were in the front of the emigration.
It is safe to say there were 10,000 to
15,000 teams that started out after we
did. As yet no one had ever passed us.
We camped on the bank of Sweetwater,
having traveled twenty miles.
We made Camp 42 on Saturday, June
IG, and got an early start so as to get
ahead of au many teams as possible.
Turning from the liver over the rolling
lands, which still continue on the south
side of the river, in striking contrast to
the cl 11'; and perpendicular rocks hun
dreds of feet high which came up to the
river on the north side, the mountain
peaks still beyond rose higher and
higher, while there was no high mount
ain to the south in less than thirty miles.
At places there were high hills within a
few miles of the river, but no enow
capped mountain near by to the south.
After traveling some six miles we came
to the celebrated ice spring, or swamp,
it is a level place, some 100 yards across,
covered with tufts of grass, on which one
can walk. As it is some little distance
from the road, we had nothing to dig out
the ice except a butcher-knife, that we
carried in a scabbard on our belt. That
not being very long, we were unable to
dig deep enough to get the solid ice. We
took out a quantity in the shape of ice
sickles. While it gets very cold here at
night, it is hot enough this June day for
ice to be quite a treat. The question
comes up in my mind, if the devil's king
dom is not east of the Gate instead of
west, as we had a number of hot springs
before we reached there, which we had
no particul »r use fo ■, and now we found
this delightfully refreshing, clear ice,
which is so desirable of a hot day. We
traveled eighteen miles during the fore
noon, and slopped on the Sweetwater for
noon. We crossed the river, ascended a
high rocky hill to avoid a canon, where
the Sweet water passes between two steep
bluffs. We crossed the river (or as it is
down to a creek here) twice and camped,
having traveled twenty-eight miles.
We had the mystery of the night be
fore explained here by seeing the moun
tain sheep jumping from ledge to ledge
and sometimes hundreds of feet from a
ledge above to one below, alighting on
their heads. There had evidently a
drove of them crossed the river going
south onto the plains which were mis
taken for mules crossing the river. The
next alarm was some frisky fellow prac
ticing on the cliffs; anyway we were all
satisfied it was no practical joke.
It was fearfully cold on the night of
Sunday, June 17th, ice forming half an
inch thick. There having been Indians
about here our mules would not eat the
grass, and they were scared, just ready
to catch any sound and stampede. It is
strange how fearful a Spanish mule is of
an Indian or wolf. We had to secure
our mules near the wagons and keep up
a fire so they could see, and we put on
double guards outside of the light
of the fire so as to be sure the
Indians did not get in close range.
We ascended a high hill, which was
exceedingly rocky; crossed a branch of
the Sweetwater, which we called Straw
berry creek, several times during the
day Sometimes it was swampy, nar
row bottoms, sometimes hills or rocks,
sometimes a plain en the top of the hill,
but no grass. We encamped on the last
crossing of the Bweetwater. There was
a number ot traders here, mountaineers
and Mormons. They had lots of ponies,
ranging in price from $75 to $130. They
sell Borne, as more or less mules get
lame, and some of the men who have
money, traveling with uncongenial part
ners, buy a pony and leave their com
panions with the ox teams. But the
most profitable part of these fellows'
proceeding is to run off mules and cattle
when they get an opportunity, for they
well know the emigrant cannot afford to
stop here in this inhospitable clime,
where there is but little chance for feed,
to hunt for a few missing animals. We
traveled twenty miles this day.
Camp 44 was pitched on Monday,
June 18th. We struck out early, leaving
the waters that flow towards the Mis
souri and on through the Mississippi to
the Gulf of Mexico, and traveled over a
high and almost level plateau for miles.
The elevation was so gradual that we
could hardly tell when we reached the
divide or summit of the great chain of
the Rocky mountains. In the place of
being a narrow pass, as was the general
belief, it was a wide expanse of country,
the mountains only showing at a great
distance on the left and possibly twenty
five miles to the right. One realized
however, that they were very high. It
snowed at intervals throughout the day.
We nooned at Pacific Springs, three
miles from the summit, the first water
that runs toward the Pacific Ocean.
We crossed dry sand and camped on
high ground, with only the water we had
in our kegs for cooking, but we had good
bunch grass for our mules and large
sagebrush for fuel; and it was something
■ needful, for it was fearfully cold. We
had not had so long a stretch of good
road since we left the States, traveling
i twenty-nine miles without locking a
i wheel. That the reader may realize the
i difference between locking a wagon in
those days—forty-five years ago—and
. now, we would say: There were no
, brakes for locking wagons. The wagon
brake is a California invention. Prior to
, that there was a chafn on the side of the
. wagon box, which was put between
spokes and fastened. So it took two
, men to run a wagon in a hilly country—
i one to drive and one to lock and unlock
1 should think there would be a lot of
disgusted fellows when tkey find the
much-dreaded south pass, that they bad
been rushing to reach, such a place, in
stead of the narrow defile, difficult of
passing, as they had been led to believe
Camp 45, on Tuesday June 19th; there
was ice half an inch thick. We got on
the road at 6 a. m., and in one mile we
came to the forks of the road, the left
going to Salt Lake via Fort Bridger and
the right band being known as the Sub
lett's cut-off to Fort Hall. Formerly the
Oregonian and California emigrants
went by Fort Bridger, but the past two
years they had mostly taken the right
hand road. So we took that although it
was understood there was a forty-five
mile desert before we came to Green
river. In six miles we reached the Lit
tle Sandy, and six miles further we
reached the Big Sandy by noon, travel
ing thirteen miles. Having reduced our
loading so that it could be put into two
wagons, we concluded to use the other
wagon to cook a good meal and keep
warm, as it was very cold. After arrang
ing our loading into two wagons and par
taking of a sumptuous meal prepared by
one Who had become quite proficient
in camp cooking, we filled oar kegs
j with water, so as to have some for our
mules on the morrow. Everything being
ready for an early start, we turned in for
On Wednesday, June 20th, camp wa?
pitched. We left camp next morning at
3a. m.. for our long drive. The road
was fair for three miles, then we came to
a swamp or alkali flit that was very bad.
After that, for twenty-five miles the road
was fiae, rolling but firm, the kind to
make good time. The remainder was
quite rough,anil we did not reach the river
until after dark. We camped two miles
above the ferry, where we first came to
j the river, traveling forty-three milea.
