Sierra Club CampFriday evening 27Dear MamaAs I am sending this letter out by the last party of the Club people I suppose [illegible] will be the the last one I can write you from up h[illegible] we have not yet heard from you but I suppose we [illegible] find several letters when we get to the Valley. We are all [illegible] a perfectly beautiful time and are well and strong an[illegible] always hungry, I have just finished a delishiou[illegible] of codfish, onions and camp bread. We are going to h[illegible] trout tonight. This morning we had a nice [illegible] trip up Lamberts Dome, supposed to be rathe[illegible] hard climb but it seemed tame after th[illegible] glorious Tuolumne Canyon, I cant possibly t[illegible] in writing about that trip but I'll try and tell [illegible] some of the things I saw when I get home, I h[illegible] the grandest time I ever had and for o[illegible] all the walking I wanted and since I got back [illegible] been treated more as if I had taken a trip to t[illegible] than as we would expect to be who had simply ta[illegible] a walk down a canyon. Mrs Price is the only other who has been down there, she went even farthe[illegible] but took it much more slowly, the day befor[illegible] we made the hard trip a lot of us went to the h[illegible] of the canyon about seven miles from here, [illegible] intended camping there that night and going with [illegible] in the morning but when they saw what the c[illegible] looked like and the scarcity of blankets and "g[illegible] all but four men and Papa and I backed out a[illegible] went home, three of the ones who stayed left us [illegible] went as far as they could that night, then [illegible]08560
