BerkeleyJuly 21 '03TypedDear PapaHelen and I are both down here in Berkeley now, trying to get used to summer school and wishing we were still in the mountains where we had such a glorious time [illegible] little while ago. Our trip was a grand success in everyway. We went wherever we wanted to, whenever and however we pleased and enjoyed every minute we were up there, yet had no terribly exciting adventures did not get lost, frozen or even very tired in spite of the fact that there was no "head" or "guide" to our091902party, but all came back feeling well and strong and happy and wishing we could have stayed there longer. We went first to Crockers, stayed a few days in the fine [illegible] fine woods there and then went to Hetch Hetchy where we stayed ten days We were the first people in there this season so we had the whole beautiful valley to ourselves while it was just at its best There was one delightful snow storm while we were there and two fine roaring thunder storms09190
