Jepson Field Book volume 31 page 4
Berkeley ----------  No. 6187. Quercus wislizenii A.DC. Shrub 8 ft. h. Delta. Aug. 15, 1914. ----- - As I look back on the years of my botanical journeyings to all parts of California I think no period stands out so clearly in the memory as three delightful weeks of springtime trailing along the whole length of Napa Valley and the whole length of its bounding ranges from the top of Mt. St. Helena southward to the Bay. I was little more than a lad then and boyish memories are vivid. Amongst it all I remember well my walking trip to the summits east of Calistoga. - I am sometimes confronted by danger, real or apparent, in my botanical journeyings and I try to remember the advice of Colonel Mosby who operated his command of sixty men with remarkable daring and success against vastly superior forces, sometimes even with effect against a whole army-corp of the enemy. His advice was: "When danger approaches do not wait for it; go to meet it"!! Such an injunction could not possibly be wiser. ::::::::: Mill Valley, Aug. 22, 1914. ----------  - Went to lower end of Redwood Canon just below Muir Woods boundary. There are several Douglas Fir trees there, 3, I found, and my quest was for material for Botany 104, one solitary tree on the grounds at Berkeley having been taken out by the usual practice of elimination.    The fog was driving hard over the Mill Valley divide but down in Redwood Canon the air was calm and soft. - Arctostaphylos glandulosa from Pipe-line Bridge down towards Mill Valley either had not fruited or had lost all its berries. No. 6188. Hemizonia  Flowers a rather deep yellow. Open hill slopes. Redwood Canon.
