Title Band of Accomplishment
Description The second night, Tuesday, November 16, we camped at Willow Bend, south of Salina and east of Aurora„ On the third night, Wednesday, November 17, we made it as far as Richfield. Mandy was sick. The fourth day, Thursday, November 18, was a bad one with wind and snow. We had to go to Elsinore for a load of hay, then we started to Jo town (Joseph) where we stayed in a vacant house without a door. At least we could be inside out of the wind. To crowd around a fireplace was really a luxury- Ellie fainted away when she started to get warm, Lue stayed with her to keep her warm. On the fifth day, Friday, November 19, we made it to the Narrows in Clear Creek Canyon. The red slick rocks were straight up on both sides. Over the years the creek had cut a place wide enough to scrape a wagon through, but it snowed and was a very cold night. Eleanor, Hary and Handy slept together from then on for warmth. On the sixth day, Saturday, November 20, we reached the rest camp on Pine Creek Ridge between Cove Fort and Beaver. The freighters stopped there when they were taking supplies to the silver mines.& For eight or nine miles we had shoveled snow in the pines. If ever there was a place that tested our wisdom and endurance, that was it. If we had any doubt that we had made the right choice in our mates, that would have been the place to back out. But as we would find out, there were more trying and exhausting times ahead in our lives together. On the seventh night, Sunday, November 21, we camped at the Buck Horn Springs near Paragonah,, Our plans were to rest on the Sabbath Day, but we worried that we might freeze to death and be found in the spring by freighters. On the eighth night, Monday, November 22, we camped at Cedar. One of the fellows said, "You will hear the Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star Band."7 On the ninth day, Tuesday, November 23, the sun was., warm on our backs and upturned faces as we soaked it in. We camped south of Kanarravilie. Our spirits soared again. 53
