Title:
Jepson Field Book volume 30 page 104
Description:
Twenty-nine Plams.  between 1800 & 1900 ft. - After a long and weary stretch of sandy mesa, up & down, but generally level,  we finally passed the foot of a low butte and Twenty-nine Palms came into view two miles away.  What  a beautiful sight was this narrow strip of green in the desloation of the burning desert. - Willow, cottonwood, mesquite, thier green crowns gladdening our hearts and rising above their crowns the light columns of the Wahington Palms. Billy [McMannie] who lives in a cluster of little tents & shades here says there :::::::::  16 May, 1914 are 15.  I count 15 in the upper eastern grove and one in the lower (western) -  There is good feed now 4 to 9 miles beyond Warrens Well (Gietta Grass) and again 10 to 16 miles beyond.  Within 5 miles of Twenty-nine Palms it is desolate as to feed and even the [?] look scrawny and there is no Gietta Grass worth a horse's attention.  Our desert-bred pones are standing up well  under the continuous going.  We have left a portion of the sack of barley brought from Barstow and a very little of the alfalfa bale, but they like the Geitta Grass and work well on it.
