June 21, 1841

Monday, 21st: We had an uncommonly good road today — an abundance of cottonwood timber — traveled late, having taken a stride of 27 miles.

Twenty-seven miles is a lot for one day. But the “road” (more like a trail) was good, the weather was pleasant, and the day was the longest of the year, so that they could “travel late.”
