Patterson Creek bed, Scott Valley.  ::::::::: Etna to Callahan to Gazelle, July 25, 1907.  Crataegus douglasii, 25 ft. h. and tree like. Scott Valley apparently same as seen on Klamath [?]. -Prunus subcordata, small tree 15 ft. h. with trunk 5 in. diam. and distinct crown. Scott Valley. -Quercus Oerstediana, clumps of young trees 12 to 16 feet high in small circles, the circles filled in center. These clumps are very marked on the thinly wooded hills from Callahan to the Mountain House (stage station) and beyond to the summit (5100 feet). Just beyond the summit on a steep slope there is low bushy Quercus Breweri and every gradation to the small trees of Quercus Oerstediana. This is an outlying part of the Scott Mountains of which there is a good view from near the Mountain House, as they lie to the south of Callahan.  -The stage line from Etna runs south to Callahan or southerly, then north easterly to Gazelle. It is a roundabout business.  -The Scott River at Callahan is a shallow stream but they use a dredge in mining its gravel bottom! They dig a hole deep enough for the dredger to work, fill it with water, and as the dredger advances and increases the hole in front, the tailings are run behind.
