Jepson Field Book volume 17 page 32
Waltham Creek, SW. Fresno Co. c. 1000 ft. [May 10, 1907] this spot an occasional tree. Below and out on the plains it strikes me that only in successive freshet years would new growth make a stand. At the noon camp we are at the base of the main range which is well but not densely wooded with small stuff. Quercus Douglasii, Engelmanni, lobata in valley large trees, Pinus Sabiniana. The higher brush is Adenostoma fasciculatum, noted Rhamnus ilicifolia and a colony of Eriodictyon tomentosum, its silver bushes making a striking sight on a curving mesa-like slope. I saw the finest show of Achryachaena mollis I ever saw, a great mass of it, like a silver lakelet, sweeping along the slope. It was in fruit and suggested white flowers.  ::::::::: [Waltham Creek, SW. Fresno Co. c. 1000 ft.] May 10, 1907  No. 2664. Clarkia purpurea ssp. quadrivulnera Spach. Purple or lilac corolla, in each case crimson sprinkled finely more noticeable in case of lilac. Pods obscurely --ribbed and roundish but perhaps more obvious in rubbing when mature. Stigma crimson. G. tenella of Cal. [?auct.?] The main ridge west of Waltham Creek is timbered about to the density of the main foothills of Vaca Mts. before cutting and burning or perhaps a little more so. Near the Gaunt Ranch we met Buckeye, Sambucus glauca, and Fraxinus dipetala for the first time, the latter 12 ft. h. [feet high]. Ceanothus integerrimus in full flower! No. 2665. Salix. Rough bark. 28 ft. [feet] high; crown broad-headed. No. 2666. Pentstemon centranthifolius Benth. Great patch of color on valley flat.
