July 10, 1841

Saturday, 10th. Travelled about 14 miles and stopped to kill and dry meat. Buffalo began to grow scarce.

On the 10th they decided to stay in place and spend a day or two hunting and drying meat. Good idea — but it wouldn’t be enough to get them to California.

Looking for something to eat?
