Jepson Field Book volume 17 page 194
Mountain House to Gazelle July 25, 1907  No. 2962. Compositae, Rays 3, broad 3-lobed, a pink streak on middle of each lobe beneath and running to base. Mountain House, Scott Mt.  -After passing the summit beyond Mountain House, the country and its vegetation instantly changes.  The forest diminishes, and from the divide one looks far and wide over the desert scenery_ of the Shasta Valley and eastward. My eyes rest with a sense of indefinable lure and attraction on that type of scenery. I like its breadth, its sweep, its mystery better than the dense forest. Some distance down grade I passed a tree (with trunk 1 ft. diam. [diameter] and distinct crown) 20 feet high of Cercocarpus ledifolius in full fruit. I saw it only as the stage passed swiftly, right by road. It might not have been ledifolius but could not have been the large leaf No. 2810.  (_Juniper over all country)  ::::::::: Sherwood Valley, July 30, 1907  -Petross, the bark peeler says: I do not like to clean up snags and rough trees after another man. I like to work in fresh timber. I can plan my work right, lay my trees better, not as much trouble, turn out more work and not work so hard, it looks like something when I get done with it, and its more satisfaction.  -Cornus Nuttallii-50 ft. h. [feet high] and 1 ft. diam. [diameter]at 1 ft. a.g. [above ground]. -Bark should be taken off in broad pieces and not cut into narrow strips. These pieces curl up, are easily handled, do not break in handling as much as uncurled narrow strips, so there_s less loss in transportation. A strip or ring should not be so wide that when curled up one man cannot handle it on account of its great weight. Not economical.
