Bi, 5924, Prunus fasciculata Gray.  Shrubs in wash. 4 to 8 ft. h. Alway in many-stemmed clumps! Ord Mt.  I notice  fertile plants & sterile plants. No. 5925. Chrysothamnus paniculatus (Gray) Hall Comp. Characteristic plant of  stream beds with distinctive habit on account of its tufted foliage at end of erect slender branches.  Ord. Mt. :::::::::  9 May 1914. - Mendenhall's map and descriptions, Desert watering Places, is very innaccurate.  Stoddard's Well he says "no name" altho it has been known as such for many years.  It is not on "[?]. side" but north side of spur, and should be located with reference to the prominent  peak westward.  He speaks of Ord spring on west side of Ord Mt. "an old camping place and readily found" no such spring exists!  When any one in giving directions says in an offhand way: "Oh, you can't miss it.  Just go so & so.  You can't miss it" why then beware.  Hunt up explicit directions from some one who knows.  Le Conte Springs_ are described as at east end of Ord Mt. & plainly marked by rubbish left by campers.  No spring is known by that name in this region says Doc. Smith. _ See p. 71 seqs.
