Out West & North Dakota

My great uncle Ernest Julius Alfred Erickson when he was proprietor
of the Wilton Pool Hall in Wilton North Dakota - September 1914

The first paragraph from a diary entry written on a deer hunting trip in Oregon that
my grandfather Frank and his older brother Ernest Julius began in the Fall of 1917.

Ernest Julius writes:
My first Deer hunt out west - September 18, 1917 - Thursday
Frank and I started out from Baker, Oregon at 8:35 in the morning and
arrived at Sumpter Or. at 10:30. Got a car from a farmer we met at a
local diner and headed to Granite. We paid $2.00, a price arrived at
given the place we are. 12:30am we had dinner and then started out for
the mountains, Mt. Baldy which is our destination."

Attached PDF is the full transcription of the diary

Thanks to my cousin Mark Henninger in Bismarck, North Dakota for the transcription
of Ernest Julius's September 18th through 26th, 1917 diary entries:
