on over the hills to Witch Creek, a few small houses straggling in a narrow valley, with a post office. Hereabouts R. D. Alderson botanized long ago and sent his plants to Professor Greene. We run on, ascend a long easy grade and come around a corner of the hill, the valley of Santa Ysabel bursting into view. The slopes and fields are yellow,--large golden lakes--with buttercups (no. 8523) and equally great white areas snowy with the flowers of Plagiobothrys no. 8524. Santa Ysabel is a very small hamlet of three or four houses. It has a store. We turn northerly, thru a canon, and finally enter San Jose del Valle, a great flat valley,--the valley of Warner Ranch.
