Diary of Fletcher Linn

Crater Lake Trip, August 1889

Wednesday, Aug. 21

        Arose with intention of visiting the lake, but after breakfast, Carrie was again taken with a violent nervous chill which was followed by three others, and in the afternoon had two more. So we abandoned visiting the lake and remained in camp during the day.

        Found a fine huckle-berry patch near camp, and gathered a lot during the day.

        In the evening Carrie was again feeling fine, as she said, and we spent the evening quite pleasantly and cheerfully, and retired with a feeling that all would be ready to take the climb to the lake next morning.
