Got up at 5 A.M. but did not march until II A.m., and then only went 8 miles and made the nicest camp we have yet had in among partially wooded hills, or rather mountains. We had some fine mountain views yesterday and today. We were so high up that the whole extent of mountainous country was spread around us.
