Title:
Jepson Field Book volume 30 page 106
Description:
Twenty-nine  Palms Mohave Desert - Tallest palm in Eastern grove 70 ft. h., 8 ft. 4 in. circ. Another one 6 ft. 9 in. circ. and 55 ft. h.  There is only one small  one which has  its chaplet of leaves, that is dead leaves turned downward.  - Pluchea sericea is with the palms, the only place I have seen it  since  the Mohave River.  It is a water indicator.  :::::::::  16 May 1914 There is no "dry lake" here as said by Mendenhall  in "Desert Watering Places", but I can see a dry lake n.w.  some  six or eight miles: Now that I am higher I see a small dry lake, 10 acres, maybe a mile n.w. of  the Palms. - From Rabbit Springs and the Granite Mts. there is a broad valley running easterly, bounded on the  south by the San Bernardino Mts.  and the Cottonwood  Mts, on the north by Goat Mt, Ord  Mt. Rodman Mt. Clark or White Mt., Bulliton Mts., Sheephole Mts etc.  Of course the valley is not strictly continuous
