Camp 118

[Today] we moved on and camped about three miles from the summit of Mono Pass, at an altitude of 9,800 feet—like the other camps, picturesque enough. I went on the summit of the pass to measure it—it is over 10,700 feet. The night was cold and everything froze up hard, but a bright camp fire cheered the evening.
