Jepson Field Book volume 26 page 88
Colorado River ---------- water the river rapidly silted into her and I think probably that in half-a-day she would have silted full. - We are now in the bend of the river near the Riverside Mts. and are just passing out of view of the Whipple Range which has loomed finely the further we got away from it. The great Monument Peak mt [?] as its easterly end stands out finely, the monument showing saliently at this distance. I have never seen a mountain named for an obvious natural feature that was as justly expressive as this and not strained. There is no effort or play of the fancy here. The monument ::::::::: 28 Oct., 1912. ---------- might well have been built by man so far as trueness to the name is concerned. Further east is the flat-topped or table-land range which screens Bill Williams Fork from this direction. - Mosquitoes. We have not been troubled thus far. One or two nights there was a stray individual but no trouble when sleeping. - Salix nigra, 30 ft. h., 4 1/2 in. diam at 4 in., 10 years old but rings not very distinct. These trees stand so thickly that it is not easy to make one's way through them. A small pole was 16 1/2 ft. h, 1 1/4 in. diam. at 4 in. and 6 yrs. old.
