areas. This brush is mostly Ceanothus velutinus, Arctostaphylos manzanita, Cerasus emarginata, these three make up the body of the brush which is 6 to 8 feet high. Where it is lower Quercus vaccinifolia is abundant, also Q. Sadleriana and Amelanchier alnifolia. About 2 miles westerly from Elbow Camp the canons [canyons] north show at their heads a few trees of Brewer Spruce. These canons [canyons] are a few miles south of Preston Peak the great landmark of the Siskiyous in the west.
No. 2868. Darlingtonia Californica Torr. Sepals 5, spreading away from the petals which converge to the tips by their edges forming a crown over the essential parts. A little above the middle there is a constriction of the petal in such a way that contiguous petals form a hole or entrance, there being of course five such in a circle. Ovary narrow below, spreading upward to a broad circular summit with a central depression from which arises a short style capped by 5 rotately spreading stigmas. Stamens 15, equal, 1/3 length pistil. Flower pendulous on top its stalk, one to each plant. Petals dark purple, strongly parallel-veined below. Abundant in a canon [canyon] bottom_ where we lunched at noon; about six miles west of Elbow Camp. In this canon [canyon] we also saw the following: --
No. 2869. Picea Breweriana. Cards of foliage, also bark specimen taken. One tree 80 feet high, 3 ft. diameter at 4 ft. above ground.
No. 2870. Chamaecyparis Lawsoniana. Spm. [Specimen] taken with Picea Breweriana. Also more common in canon [canyon] at noon camp, 100 feet high, and 1 1/2 to 2 feet in diameter of trunk.

on the ridge I noticed with Picea Breweriana a scrub Taxus. (T. brevifolia). The altitude is pretty great for it. Castanopsis chrysophylla scrub is in the chaparral. It stump sprouts freely as observed in fired chaparral scrub. Arctostaphylos manzanita sprouts feebly when burnt over. (?A. manzanita).
No. 2871. Arenaria gregaria Heller. On dry ridge in rocks.
No. 2872. Taxus brevifolia. Scrub along ridge.
No. 2873. Xerophyllum tenax. Dry ridges.
No. 2874. Pentstemon. New species to me. Upper lip promptly fading brownish or dull. Corolla white with red-brown veins radiating from throat. Stems many form a stout branched low woody base. See p. 202.
No. 2875. Kelloggia galioides Torr. Dry ridges.
No. 2876. Pedicularis Howellii Gray. Dry ridges. Fls. [Flowers] white.
No. 2877. Perianth egg yellow. Anthers blue. B. Crocea Wats. Brodiaea. Dry ridges.
No. 2878. Ericaceous, not before seen. Fls. [Flowers] white, corolla 5-parted. In 2 fls. [flowers], 2 lobes united 2/3 way up (teratological!). Stamens 10, anthers opening by terminal pores. Stems procumbent forming a low loose mat under Lawson Cypress at Cedar Camp.
No. 2879. Liliaceous. Not before seen at Cedar Camp. Tofieldia glutinisa ssp. occidentalis Wats.
Cedar Camp. About 8 miles west of Elbow Camp, on open hillside below trail, one mile beyond Pitcher Plant stream_ _Willis Hole. Plenty of excellent feed and fine water. A fine camp site. Lawson's cypress here large trees 100 feet high and one measured 4 feet 2 in. diam. at 4 ft. Bark at first shreddy in large thin layers from a smoothish surface, in age becomes broken into brand ridges with furrows between and more or less fibrous surface instead of earlier smooth corky surface.
