Camp 200

Mr. Olmsted came last night and at three I started with him for Yosemite….He is the manager of the Mariposa Estate. His family [is] in the valley, where they spend several weeks during the heat of the summer….

We rode 13 miles with grand views as we ascended of the forests and foothils and the great plain and the Coast Ranges. After dark when we got to Ostrander’s, [his] hospitable wife insisted in our taking supper although we had lunches with us. Then we built an evening fire and slept near it.
