Ernest Julius and my grandfather Frank Severin Erickson went on a deer hunting trip to Mount Baldy, Oregon starting on September 18th, 1917.

They stayed up in the mountains, living in a tent and cooking on open fires and enjoying life for nine days in the wilderness of Oregon. Ernest Julius wrote daily diary entries of their days and nights along the trails of Oregon.
