Mix's in Mix's Canon.
No. 2182. Zygadenus Fremonti, [Wats.] in chapparal on
high east slopes of Vaca Mts, in good soil.
No. 2183. Viola purpurea [quercetorum B. & Cl.] in sandy loam on crest of Vaca ridge near School._ There were a few other things that suggested Howell Mt (which we could plainly see looming up in front of us in the Mt. St. Helena Range). These were Pteris aquilina (not much of it) and Quercus chrysolepis. There was also a small cluster of Madrona's!!
_ Rhine School in 1890 was low down in Weldon Canon; it may have been moved to summit of ridge.
