[3]revel in the chapters of the book that tells of the ground we had so recently seen over. It brings our happy outing so vividly before me and I am trying to get the plant life into some of my brain cells that seem so hopelessly leaky. Are you not glad to be relieved from repeating all those dear p[illegible]ous to me on an average of a dozen times daily? Donald and I enjoyed our Tahoe trip very much, we climbed Tallac and traveled over to desolation valley but we missed our party sorely and I found that mountaineering had lost much of its zest for me when there was no one to call me names. We found the spring at Glen Alpine the [sweetest?] in our explored world and were delighted to find a new tree - the Sierra hemlock. Mrs Pierce called it.
