Diary of Fletcher Linn
Crater Lake Trip, August 1889
Monday, Aug. 26
Arose early, and renewed journey at 7:30.
Passed over pretty rough road. Killed some quail and grey-squirrels on the way. One horse nearly gave out, and made us very late in reaching Jackson’s, our camping place. Camped in the midst of sixty acres of melons, and were to told to “help ourselves”. After doing so, and feasting highly all but the girls retired. It being our last night out, they were bent upon having a good time, and were up until nearly one o’clock. They sang, chatted, feasted upon melons and had a merry time.
