History: About a mile north of the steep hill they came to the Echel’s homestead (now Red River Corrals) and again were invited to “light down” and have a bite of lunch. Her grandfather declined as it was getting late and he wanted to make camp before dark.
They soon came to another crossing of Red River where there was a rickety bridge that was “partly rotted away” and the horses were afraid of the makeshift crossing.
