Jepson Field Book volume 17 page 146b
Cont.  No. 2914. Whipplea modesta Torr. See p. 177. This had a strange look but I refer it to modesta. -Cont. from p. 172 seq. While on this ride through the Redwoods (cf. p. 171 at bottom) I saw a white saprophyte that was probably Monotropa uniflora. Looking back upon it, it seems incredible that I did not take it, but I was utterly exhausted from the trip over the Siskiyou Mountains and could scarcely get down from the saddle without distinct effort.

In about a mile or so, the trail forks. We keep to the upper trail following along the sides of the divide and in about 3 miles come in right of Marble Mt. with its white masses rising irregularly. Marble Mt. is in the form of a huge crater or circular rim open to the north. The highest masses on the east side of the rim are the white landmark peaks. The masses on the west side are not so high and not so white. We follow around the southerly rim of
