Portola Expedition: Sunday, November 12, 1769

THE RETURN JOURNEY
To San Andreas Lake (camped at the same location November 4).

Gaspar de Portolá


We proceeded for five hours over the road by which we had come and made the same distance as on the outward journey.

Miguel Costansó


We travelled for four and a half leagues to the north-northwest. We halted near a small pond in the canyon which we followed coming from the port of San Francisco.

Fray Juan Crespi


After we two had said Mass in the presence of all the men we left the camp, following the valley of San Francisco to the north-northwest and north. We traveled four and a half leagues, and halted near a small lake in the same valley of our father San Francisco.
