Locations: Fourth of July Canyon. Homer. Keystone Canyon. Ledge. Needles.  

Drive from Needles to 4th of July Canyon in the New York Mts. 60 mi. stopping near the railroad station of Homer to collect and again on a sandy wash through hills at 3450 ft. At Ledge we enquire about the road to Keystone canyon and are told it is washed out and that we would find 4th of July Canyon, 6 miles distant fully as attractive. The high part of the New York Mountains rises quite abruptly, a rocky, granite range from an extensive elevated plateau, covered with yucca forest. The floor of the canyon is an extension of the plateau to the base of the highest peak, narrowing gradually and is covered with juniper, pinyon and oak. We are camped below hills, near the entrance to the canyon. The floor is covered with a luxuriant growth of Astragalus lentiginosus? In flower and going to seed. Sprinkled among them is Linanthus aurea. One cannot move without stepping on them.

Locations: Giant Ledge Mine.  

Today collected along the crest of the limestone hill at the W side entrance to the canyon at base of a ledge. P. M. drove up the canyon 1 mi. to its head, or to the old road to the Giant Ledge Mine. Area is densely wooded with oak, juniper, pinyon pine, Garrya, Coleogyne and some Ceanothus, which extends up the walls of the canyon between a jumble of giant boulders. The canyon heads up at the highest peak and is blocked with boulders. We found some running water at the base of the sleep incline, with grassy banks, willow and Baccharis.

Drove 1 mi. up the canyon to bottom of road leading to camp of the old Giant Ledge Mine. To our surprise find Petalostemon Searlsiae in sandy gravel of the road, after leaving the camp we followed up the narrow canyon below the dumps to a limestone-like formation above the granite. Climbed to the summit of the ridge about 5900 ft. and returned over rocky ground to the main dump and from thence by trail back to the car. Took a branch road from there that appears to go up the main canyon and walked down the watercourse, some water in it. Found a thicket of willows and swamp? Grass choking the course.
