I love Alcove spring, it is so much better than any other place we have stopped on our trip to Oregon. I did a lot of things that helped me relax and have fun. I played jump rope and cats cradle but the most fun thing I did was go swimming! It was so nice being able to have a fresh different lunch instead of leftover stew, leftover stew, and more leftover stew. We had the men to go out and hunt a a rabbit so we could make a yummy rabbit stew with potatoes and other vegetables that we had gone out to find. We also picked fresh juice filled berries and we made the most delicious apple cobbler for desert! The cobbler had large chunks of apples en-cadged in a warm flaky crust. I also spent a lot of my time cleaning our clothes in the wonderful the spring water and I also cleaned up our wagons so they could be super nice on our trip. The Alcove spring was also very good for our animals. We had to rest them and give them good food and water so that they could be as strong as ever once we get bake on our way to Oregon. The oxen are very tired from pulling the heavy wagons so they needed that rest. And so did I.
