Jepson Field Book volume 26 page 130
Milpitas to Picacho, 180 ft. ---------- - The forest of Salix nigra and Populus fremonti is becoming larger as to size of trees, 50 to 60 ft. h. and the banks are more beautiful. - As we looked yesterday down river to the tilted mesa sloping down to our camping place of last night, the growth of Olneya tesota and Parkinsonia torreyana was finer than seen elsewhere; the mesa looked wooded, from our viewpoint, indeed almost forested! - Stopped at Draper's Landing (210 ft.). Draper is a genuine pioneer. His language is crisp, forceful, direct; of course not polished and more or less profane. He is installing a pumping plant, jacked up the bank from the river a 4-ton boiler, has cement he has accumulated for 8 yrs. Single handed the work goes on as he rounds up junk. ::::::::: Imperial Co.  3 Nov. 1912. ---------- - Near Draper's Landing is a rock in the river. A little below is a three-tower rock (Lighthouse Rock!) (alt. 210 ft.). At the 2d corner of the first bend below is a small pyramidal rock near the Arizona shore. - Draper had fox, coyote, coon, badger and beaver skins. He had a lion skin which he sold to Grinnell (on G's trip down the river) for _25.00. - Below Draper's landing the scenery grows wild and picturesque. The many-colored hills and mountains come close to the river's edge. The peaks are very bold and prominent, the ranges exceedingly jagged, more so as ranges, than the Needles. No. 5290. Krameria canescens Gray. [= K. Grayi] Upper sepals 2, ascending; 2 lateral ascending & approximating upper sepals; 1 lower & largest sepal descending; 3 upper pets. parallel & approximate, 2 lower gland-like, small & round.
