Dear Mama

We are back at Crockers where it seems very warm after the snowy higher country but where the trees are very beautiful and the food is very good. In about a week we will be at home again so I won't try to tell you much about our fine trip till I see you. I suppose Helen Swett got to Muir last night and that she has told you how much we have enjoyed our five weeks of camping. I wish that I could have stayed up in the mountains longer, but I'll be glad to be home. I feel well and rested after so many glorious trips and I think my eyes are alright again. The snow didn't hurt them a bit this year. Helen was rather thin when we got here but it seems to agree with her so well here that I thought we had better for a few days before starting home across the hot plains. She didn't take any of the hard trips and seems to be much stronger then when we started


The club outing was a great success this year. I went up Lyell with them and enjoyed every minute of the climb though we started at 3 AM. The trip was very well managed and all of the 53 people who started got to the top without any trouble.
It is getting late and writing is not as good as talking to you as I'll be able to do soon so good night
