Camp 191

Went on to 191, a long ride over very rough country. In one place we worked along a ridge but two rods wide at the top and part of that rising in bare rocks while both sides of this ridge were so precipitous that one could see the green meadows 2000 – 3000 feet beneath. At last struck the branches of the Kings River and camped at the head of one near 10,000 feet.
