Jepson Field Book volume 26 page 54
Chemuevis Valley. 425 ft. ---------- the lowlands, soft and fluffy, revealing every line in your fingers as you press it between forefinger and thumb, like talcum powder; this soil has been ground and bolted, it has been picked up and laid down a hundred times, each time diffused in water and then preciptated as fine as dust.  - Populus fremontii. An important tree economically along the Colorado River. Used for timbers in construction of buildings as in a hotel at Blythe. Used especially in this region as decking for bridges; as such it wears well. No better lumber for box lumber says Rennie who also ::::::::: San Bernardino Co. _ 24 October 1912 ---------- says it is standard stock for excelsior, a factory at Sacramento at one time manufacturing it.  - The river is full of noises, and of many different kinds, roarings, ripples, sawings or [?] groanings. The river works, boils, eddies, bubbles, sweeps, whirlpools, and seems to fight with itself and its bed. Across a long straight stretch of water (we have had such 3 or 4 miles long) the roaring of the  water around a brush pile tangled on the bottom can be heard a mile. No. 5202. Encelia farinosa. See p. 61. also p. 49  Comp. 5202 coll. near Steamboat Rock. No. 5203. Prosopis glandulosa (juliflora). [= P. glandulosa var. Torreyana] 8-12 ft. tall.
