[Louie Strentzel Muir]
Crocker'sMay 28th '03 TypedDear MamaAs you already know from Helen's letter we are back at Crockers again having a restful lazy time after our glorious Hetch Hetchy trip which was in every way a grand success. The last time the mail went out (evening before last) I was too sleepy to write anything at all intelligible I went to bed at eight oclock instead but [I guess?] Helen told you all the news. The cause [of my?] being so very sleepy was that I had gotten up at four oclock in the morning, cooked breakfast (not a very serious undertaking) helped jack three horses, and then walked five miles, four thousand feet of which were almost straight on end. It is only twenty miles from Hetch Hetchy here with very little climbing, but besides this walk Robert, Christopher, and I, left the main trail and went down into P[illegible]nt-Canyon, a rocky valley that the Tuolumne flows through after it leaves Hetch Hetchy. It is very pretty but not nearly as fine as Hetch Hetchy. All this may09189
