Rising early next morning, and getting our breakfast, we started a-toot tbis time hoping to have better luck than the day before. Shouldering our guns we started iu a north westerly direction. Not going very tar we struck lots of deer tracks but we were uuuble to see any. We wandered on to some very high peaks and saw some delightful views, I love to stand ou na ture rugod peaks and watch her beautus unfold After 1. av- iug this place weurued oti'iu a southwesterly direction. This was a fearfully roun place. God iu his wisdom has formed some very rugged places in theso lone-, ly mountains. Wanderiug around for some time camp, and getting nearer our and we decided to return move it to some other place. On returning we found it near twelve o'clock, and then we th 'Ughcit best to prepare dinner before moving. So the cook proceeded to get dinner, and I to I ok after the horses. After saddled our horses ud went uffi down the cauyou iu a weuterly direction. Atter we lett Mr, Baker's place, it took us oome time to find the trail that led ti.e way wo wanted to go. Striking it at last we went down the canyon for some distance, and coming to a ver nice place to make a camp and plenty of grass fr our horses i We concluded to suy there thai night ditching our saddle hors es vve started down into the can ouiosee is we couiu nnu any road whjstles are all right but to us water tor making tea, and to tnere ls more poetrv in the sound of wash with, Willie leaving his ! a g00(j ijve factory whistle it means gun on his saddle, while I took something In order to get a gee mine along.
