My westward journal #10

4-17-1820

Dear journal,

We arrived at Fort Laramie at first light. We stayed inside our wagons until the sun rose further in the sky. Around noon, we all made our way out of our wagons to buy supplies. I bought another pencil and Jasper bought a journal of his own! I don’t know what my parents bought, but I know it was necessities. There was water on both sides of the Fort, so our whole wagon train filled their cases. It tasted delicious, but Jasper told me it tasted like regular water. So, maybe it tasted extra good because I was super thirsty! After I ate my lunch, I went to look around Fort Laramie. It looked like any other Fort to me.
