Saturday, Aug. 10

        Arose at 5:30 A.M. Had good hot breakfast, and were again moving along on our way at 8:16 o'clock.

        Roads terrible-the worst yet passed over. Reached Lake of the Woods at 2:30 P.M. Water very scarce along the road, and not very good at the camping ground near the lake.

        Forest fires raging and smoke very dense.

        We rode twice along the beach or shore, then pitched camp near the lake at 5 o'clock. Had grand hot supper. Gathered huckleberries along the road, and they formed a part of our bill of fare for supper.

        Spent the evening in playing whist, checkers, in singing, playing guitar, harmonica, cornet, and in a good social time.

        Retired at 11:30

 

        A party of three from near Ashland were camped beside us, with whom we had a pleasant visit and social time.

        Found plenty of fine feed for horses, and a good huckle-berry patch near camp.

        Intending to stay at Lake of the Woods several days, we arranged camp very orderly and as conveniently as possible, and prepared to take a good rest, and have a jolly time on the lake shore
