Wanderer camped on the summit of Winchester Mountain (just west of Brookins Spring) the night of August 19, 1859. The next day he crossed the Canadian and camped just west of North Fork Town. He wrote in his second letter of Aug. 22:
"For hours we worked, and at last had both wagons upon tho summit (of Winchester Mountain), where we encamped for the night, and as it was deliciously cool, had a tolerable night's rest. As we lay rolled up in our blanket, the moon shone out, and the desire to get up and view the mountain by moonlight was irresistible."
