A portion of Sitgreaves’ journal entry for September 7, 1851:

“The surrounding scenery resembled that of the northwestern prairies, the country being bare of trees and the horizon unbroken, except in one direction, where a high, conical peak, that had served us several days as a landmark, varied the uniformity of its outline”.
