Jepson Field Book volume 30 page 78
Near S. base Ord Mt. - Krameria parvifolia  Benth. a comparatively rare plant as compared with individulas of other spp.  But common about Ord. ie. relatively to its occurrence in other areas so far as I have noted.  Still it is in full & heavy flower which render it comspicuous. - Salazaria mexicana common about Ord Mt. - Encelia, no  , in washes about Ord Mt. No. 5935. Thamnosma montanum Torr. &Frem. Rather common about the south and west base of Ord Mt.  fruiting very heavily this year.  Smith says this is used in preference to Ephedra as a specific.  Bot. Cal. says "rather rare" but it is not in the Ord region.  Heavy turpentine odor. :::::::::  11 May 1914 - Dry lake just south of pass over west end of Ord Mt. Atriplex canescens, filling a great deal of the lower part of flat, most of it dead or nearly so and  looking very blue at a distance. - Stanleya pinnata Nutt. no. 5937 filling an area of the flat  five  acres with color.  Very handsome round many-stemmed plants, finest I ever saw, 4 to 6 ft. high. Noon stop:  Lulu ate greedily a bush of Franseria dumosa cropping it down to the woody base.  Judy ate Amsinckia no. 5834, Devils Lettuce as eagerly. - But it soon developed that Lulu was hungry.  See p. 81 - Rodman Mt., black & desolate, looms [bulkily] just directly east of the noon stop in dry lake flat.
