Journal entry: dear people of the world Today we traveled to a place outside of Independence rock. When we left Russ Ledger one of the wagon masters from Wyoming told us that there were 37 wagons 2 buggies 89 horsebackriders 17 handcarts 265 in wagons 256 walkers and 610 on the trail.

We didn't get into camp until 5pm it was a long long day, my mom and dad had to go back to Casper to get our car I walked all day so didn't get in until 6:30

it started to down pour at 9pm my, mom and dad got back just before and was my dad mad because we didn't water the animals but he got over it.
