Berkeley to Halfmoon Bay
- Hills from San Francisco south to Halfmoon mainly barren, totally of trees, a low scrub painiting one or two sides of the back ca_ons - Baccharis and many semi-shrubby things.
- Ryder, Professor of Sanskrit, my companion.
- At Halfmoon Bay in a creek bed are Salix lasiandra, Populus trichocarpa, Scrophularia californica (8 ft. h.), Urtica californica Greene (6 ft.h.). Redwood is seen from Halfmoon both east and northeast as a grizzly fringe coming over the crests and saddles from the east. The barren hills seem to extend further and further back as one goes south along the Coast
