Jepson Field Book volume 17 page 26
Coalinga, May 9, 1907.  Row (11 saloons on the block) and after getting our outfit together started out for Alcalde. Passed it a mile and camped. No. 2653. Juniperus Californica. First tree noticed near Alcalde and above a quarter mile there were occasional trees scattered over the hill. Not "trees" either only bushes 5 to 10 ft. [feet] high.  This Coast Range country is markedly coast range with its soft slopes running into abruptest walls. The streams run hither and yon, and wind about. You can never tell where they are going to come out. In the Sierras they are sharply parted by divides. This stream we are encamped on, Warthan ::::::::: Waltham Creek, May 9, 1907. w. Fresno Co.  Creek, runs out over the plains as a real water stream now. So does the Tule River, White River, etc. on the other side of the San Joaquin but these streams have not done so for years. It is all owing to the great rainfall in the last two years. Tulare Lake is 60 miles long. Two years ago it was quite dry. Salvia carduacea forms great blue patches at the bases of the foothills at Coalinga. Hopping says that in Grouse Valle, s. [south] fork Kaweah, there are five oaks: Quercus lobata (4 or 5 ft. diam. [feet diameter]), Q. Douglasii, Q. wislizenii, Q. chrysolepis, Q. Breweri. Altitude 5000 ft. or at least 4500 ft., the Yellow Pine there and beginning heavy just above.
