From Craig, Colorado to Purcell, Colorado - late fall 1924

 

“It was eleven p.m. when Ola and Frank got the cattle into camp that
night.  This was another dry camp, no water for the livestock.  Outside of
Laramie, Wyoming.  Daddy got permission from a Mexican lady to let the
livestock water at her tank.
 
On the twenty-second night they camped in the Nunn school yard.  Frank
and Ola did not make it into camp until midnight that night.  The next night
they pulled into Grandpa Calendars place.  About two miles south of the
prairie View school, or eight miles north east of Purcell.  Ola said she
actually gained weight on that trip.  She gained from eighty-six pounds up to
on hundred and nine pounds.”
