showing the sutures very plainly, possibly young B. ovatus, and a few bivalves, with a fragment of some species of Scaphites and a couple of gastropods. We reached camp at 4:15, hastily broke camp and reached Big Thompson just below Loveland in time to set the tent before dark. Markman and Dodds went to town for provisions while Harry and I prepared the cots etc. At 9 p.m. Dodds returned and we had a good beefsteak supper, leaving some in the oven of the camp stove to keep warm for Markman, who returned at 10 p.m. just as I was ready to extinguish the light. It has been a hot, clear day. We are getting lots of alkali in the water now.
