Jepson Field Book volume 30 page 108
Twenty-nine Palms, Mohave Desert  being interrupted by low mesa rises which divide the dry lake basins and also interrupted somewhat or partially by low buttes  or hills.  But practically there is a great trough with the mts. on the north giving the effect at a distance of one range of overlapping ridges or mountain crests.  The [strangest] interruption is between or near Superstition Cedar Stake and Shays Well. Cont. from bottom p. 110. Hall, Comp. S. Cal. [Compositae of Southern California] applies "Cottonwood Mts." to whole range as far as Morongo Pass which sees to me desirable.  See his map.  The extension of San Bernardino Mts. easily into the desert beyond Morongo Pass,as in Mendenhall and others, very unwise.  :::::::::  May 16, 1914.
