Journal Entry

August 28, 1896 ~ Friday

Aug 28th We got up in the morning, travelled through
the most romantic country I ever saw, a great
deal of the way was through tunnels, the east one
is half a mile to the bottom of the valley. The sun shone
bright, this is the highest elevation we reached.
It is the roughest piece of railroad I ever traveled
for over 90 miles. We took breakfast at Harveys
and passed through Los Angeles at 130 and
through Santa Anna at 315. We saw the old Mission
on San Fran, and came to the Sea San Diego at 10
min to 5 o'clock, and registered at the Coronado
which is on an island in the bay of San Diego.
