"This day we traveled sixteen miles. We first ascended a long hill on the northeast side of the stream (Umatilla River), to a high plain, over which we traveled for fifteen miles, then down a long hill to the valley, then one mile to the stream.
Here we found good camping and a butcher located here, with a bountiful supply of good beef, which he sold very cheap, and which we hungry emigrants ate with good relish."
P.V. Crawford, August 1851
