Date: July 3, 1927 Weather: Warm day with showers
Place: Vernal Utah From Berthaud Pass near Lauson
Via: Arid mountainous sandy regions- narrow paths-sandy
Impressions: The trip today was entirely through arid rolling even mountain wastelands which consist mostly of sagebrush and cactus and are thickly inhabited by prairie dogs and grasshoppers which prevent any prosperous raising of crops. The horizon is every direction was nothing but high barren rolling mountains of sage brush with canyons and very picturesque formations of sand rock. The mts here seem to be of different blending shades of blue and violet which turn yellow gold and red close by. We passed many ranches and cowboys. We were informed that the day before we were at Berthaud Pass they had an inch of snow which was completely gone.
