Yesterday’s answer:
A   A snowball that he ate
June, 1847, Rocky Ridge, Pioneer Company, William Clayton:   At 1:20 we proceeded again, our road running on the river banks two miles then turning to the northwest and ascending a succession of hills one after another for three miles farther, winding around and over hill and valley in some places over a good hard road, and in other places over rocks and broken fragments of rock, making it severe on wagons and requiring great care in teamsters. About a half mile north of the road at the top of this ridge there is a heavy bank of snow which some of the brethren went to visit and amused themselves by snowballing each other. Brother Carrington say there is every appearance of a rich lead mine in that place, having examined the place minutely.
June 1847, Rocky Ridge, Pioneer Company, Thomas Bullock: Leave this place at 1:30, continuing through the very narrow vale. . .  We ascended a long steep hill, finding many daisies which was a pleasant sight for me. Brother Wordsworth brought me a ball of snow which I ate; quite a treat for the Anniversary of my Wedding day.
