My westward journal #16

8-5-1820

Dear journal,

I’m still tired and still bored. We’ve been traveling along the Snake River plain for awhile now. But there are trees. Trees! The trees offer shade which is good because it’s so hot. We decided that we were going to stay here for a couple of days. We are actually staying quite near Fort Boise. Father and some of the other men went to see if it was worth it. It turned out that it was worth it. Most of the wagons needed some kind of repair or another, so we took them into Fort Boise. I was glad that we were staying here for awhile because all those wagon repairs took a long time to complete.
