This was the second day of a tardeada.

A tardeada was two short marches between two water holes that could not be made in one normal day's travel of four or five leagues. The first day's travel began in the afternoon, but the second day began in the morning. The encampment for the night between the two was without water for the people, other than what they were carrying, and no water, or very little and possibly barely drinkable water, for the animals.

There were five tardeadas completed by the Anza Expedition, as follows:
