Title:
Jepson Field Book volume 26 page 144
Description:
Colorado Desert ---------- - Vegetation of Colorado Desert from Thermal & Coachella to Indio and on, is more abundant than I remembered. Beats the Mohave Desert all out about Barstow and elsewhere as I remember. The shrubs are tall and abundant and Chrysothamnus abundantly in flower. The mesquite sandhills just west of Indio are wonderful things, small distinct knolls 10 to 20 ft. h. and 2 or 3 times as broad. At Indio I examined Atriplex lentiformis, Tessaria borealis, Prosopis juliflora var. glandulosa. ::::::::: Nov. 8, 1912 ---------- Larrea mexicana is abundant. (Thermal and Coachella are very available small village stopping places.) - Palm Springs station is a mere railway station without any village at all that I saw. - As we draw in toward San Gorgonio Pass, the effect of wind on the shrubs is more and more noticeable. The Larreas look like trailing oaks in the Bay region. - Isomeris arborea, the capparidaceous shrub, in fl! at Palm Springs. - Franseria  ?  clumps 1 to 2 ft. h. abundant west of Palm Spr. and a very ragged thorny angular bush 3 ft. h., Sarcobatus?  or Franseria?
