November 22, 1911

Flo's Diary:

5 o’clock again. Start out in bob sled and with new driver Al Sipp. Best ride on trail. Go sailing along thru woods and flats– hills and gulches. Met Mrs. Franklin xxxxxxx. Saw many grouse and rabbits. Stopped at Martin’s R.H. for dinner – moose again. Cross Tanana River. Break thru overflow and scares us. My 1st holler. Cap walks 5 miles and josh him about being afraid. Changed to buckboard or small wagon. Springs on it so we go along splendidly. Cross slough 40 ft deep. Come to Munson’s R.H. Most like a hotel yet. Dandy supper – grouse and ice cream.

Mr Munson feeding moose calf – the image says that he died in 1913. I wonder if he was still at the roadhouse when Flo came through?
