Location: Rock Creek, Wyoming

Summary: Hanging out to dry.

Journal entry: Dear people of the world,
Today we were supossed to get to walk over Rocky Ridge but they wouldn't let us. It was where the willie handcart company went. We had a fun morning though walking and we left at 6am so we would be ahead of the wagons.

At lunch we were eating by a stream and yep you guessed it I go thrown in my mom says I asked for it cause I was teasing they couldn't get me. Well I was soaked so I couldn't walk the rest of the twelve miles so I rode in my friends Zac wagon and took off all my clothes except my boxers and we hung them out to dry on the wagon.

We set up camp and my family went to town for dinner and I stayed at camp but we had a breat bonfire with lots of friends. Well this is Dan by Rocky Ridge in Wyoming
