Today we stopped in Alcove Springs. Some of the things that we did today were really fun! We got to swim in the clean water. We had a picnic lunch underneath the trees.We Normally have leftover breakfast but today we had berries that we picked, a rabbit stew with potatoes and other vegetables. Some of the chores that we did were we got to wash our clothes in the clean fresh water rested our animals and cleaned out our wagons. Doing the extra chores while we were in Alcove Springs was very important because washing clothes on the Oregon Trail was very hard because we didn't have clean water to wash them in. Resting our animals was also very important because if they are tired while we are on the trail then we wont be able to travel as far as we normally do. We stayed in Alcove Springs for a few extra days so we could swim more clean more of our clothes and have our animals be resting as much as they can.
