Saturday, Sept. 9, 1933

This morning met Philip at Evanston, Wyoming at 8:30, the train being 1-2/2 hrs late a/c washout on the Denver branch requiring a wait for the connecting passengers. We then started for Salt Lake City via US 30 and US 5030. The morning was cold and cloudy. Had hoped to get a rattler between Evanston and Salt Lake to see what subspecies is found in that area but no luck. The country is hilly, almost mountainous and high.
