[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 24th Sunday We tried to ford the Lou fork. Several men crossed on Horse back. There Horses fell & plunged the men into the water. Several waggons followed. Horses got stalled into the quick sand & waggons had to be Halled out by Hand & it was given up for the day. The Camp moved down the river one mile & camped for the day. It was vary cold & windy & a snow storm at night which made it bad on our poor weak Horses. We cut down cotton wood trees & fed them on the limbs.
