overtaken. Watts and I were on our “last legs” but the others were not so tired. I felt the trip more than I ever have before, though kept up well on the way up. Carrying the heavy load without pack harness used me up and Watts probably felt the altitude, as usual the first day out. Had fried eggs for supper and they were good. Watts ate no supper. Ed Housel and another man from the sawmill called in the evening. It rained again as we were going to bed. Birds seen today Clark’s Crow and Rocky Mt jay, chickadees and juncos common up to High Fall. Above there pipits common, especially on glacier. At Saddle, Leucostictes (brown capped). Several undetermined hawks in the gulch. Pikas abundant from Goose Lake to Glacier.
