51. Frink July 8, 1850

When we arose, we found the range of mountains covered with new-fallen snow. This is a beautiful valley, and when under settlement and cultivation, will be a delightful region. A wild flax is growing in many places, as thickly as if sowed by the hand of man. At half past ten we passed a village of Snake River Indians. Soon after, we crossed six beautiful mountain streams. Mr. Rose was much improved to-day, and able to drive the small wagon part of the time. I visited a lady to-day at a train which had halted not far from ours—an unusual incident on this journey.
