September 15, 1862: Mount Shasta

Camp 99

Our barometrical observations between the Strawberry Valley camp and the snow line did not calculate up satisfactorily. So [today], with Schmidt and one pack-mule, botanical box, and barometer, I returned. The day was fine, and we had again the lovely view and grand forest. We botanized and got the desired observations. Our appetites were good, and we had a fine chunk of venison, as well as bacon, etc., and fared well. We stayed [here] all night.
