At one place they made a “jornada” of seventy miles without water.
I have noted the only two patches of grass found during the 'jornada.'
The people dreaded an attack, and thought me mad, when I made known my intention of crossing the jornada.
No guide could be hired on any terms, so great was their dread of the jornada and its occasional denizens, the Apaches.
To avoid this obstacle, the wagons took the dubious detour north across the jornada del Muerto.
Its fourth jornada (day's journey) brought it to the pretty valley where later was established the mission of San Luis Rey.
Theoretically, the jornada was fifty miles wide here; in reality it was much wider; in seeming it was twice as wide.
Hence the name jornada del Muerto, which is often translated as the journey of death or as the route of the dead man.
They are the panoramic views that present themselves during a single “jornada.”
It is to be hoped that the fear of meeting with us will prevent them from coming into the jornada north of the town.
