Jepson Field Book volume 30 page 34
Ord Mt. 4954 = summit. - Hills at Osborne's Camp: the following species: Yucca brevifolia; Lycium  andersonii, tubular corolla; Rosaceous spiny shrub,_ no.; Pencil Cactus, the most slender cylindrical stemmed one; Grandfather cactus, no. 5928; Erodium cicutarium, the common species here, indeed I have not seen any other; it is highly valued  from fodder and is an exceptional case  of an immigrant being of economic value.  Grayia spinosa.  Phacelia whitlavia.  - Ord Mt. altitude.  My estimate on p. 46 of  6500 is a guess based on [] Mt. to the  south, the nearest U. S. G.  S.  Bench marks = 4100 ft.  The exact figs., 4954, on p. 74 I had from the State Mineralogical Bureau.  This would seem  to be too low.  _ Coleogyne ramosissima :::::::::  May 3, 1914. - Eriogonum inflatum, "full of water, a resource of quail  and other desert animals.  Rub it just as it is coming into flower and you hands are all wet." - Geo. Willis.  Which is quite true at just this season.  - The view from the summit of Ord is very fine.  The most prominent spectacle is the San Bernardino and San Gabriel ranges covered with snow.  The San Bernardinos, San Gorgonio and San Bernardino are splendid and are only excelled by Baldy (San Antonio).  Faintly in the north distance & only to be seen by good eyes is the high snow capped hood of Telescope Peak.  Whilst all about lie the desert valleys and desert ranges, Fremont Peak, Calico Ranges, and Newberry Mts. [lonely], vast, desolate.  See. p. 33.
