Apr. 14, 1939
      Soil granite sand. Water is obtained from the auto camp from well 15 feet down in solid granite. In the Fall, it sometimes goes nearly dry. West less than a mile is a lava capped hill. A forest of Yucca brevifolia covers the uplands about here and scattered among them is a heavy growth of brush, very few bare spots and a good drainage. Good soil and moisture. Shrubs collected here by me May 5, 1933 were identified as follows: Ericameria monactis, Tetradymia stenolepis, Parosela fremontii, Menodora spinescens (now in full bloom), Salvia carnosa, Coleogyne ramosissima, Grayia spinosa, and Ephedra viridis. Others noted are Chrysothamnus, Larrea, Beloperone, Krameria, Encelia, and Opuntia. Two shrubs in blossoms are begging to be identified. Annuals? Taken in '33 were Mirabilis froebelli, Abronia villosa, Castilleja angustifolia, Astragalus layneae, Baileya multiradiata, and Lepidium fremontii. Some annuals collected this afternoon were found mostly under bushes. Surface of ground is moist from rains and snow yesterday and last nigh
