Title:
Jepson Field Book volume 31 page 26
Description:
Oakland Hills ----------  - Dirca occidentalis Gray No. 1. - 13 in. circ. at 4 in. - Height 6 1/2 ft. I find few plants with at all good    sized trunks this trip. It is rarely that shrubs stand over 6 ft. h., more commonly 4 to 5 feet. = No. 6229a. - Arctostaphylos andersonii in flower. A glandulosa has no flowers and scarely any sign of buds. A. andersonii = No. 6229 - Barbarea orthoceras var. dolichocarpa Fer. No. 6227. See p. 28. ----- - Valley Oak. Mary Hallock Foote uses a fine phrase about this tree: "the great oak's leafy chambers" -- Valley Road, 156. ::::::::: February, 1915 ----------  - Walked out the top of Thorn Hill_ by going through Claremont and along the Antioch rr., thence into Kohler Canon. This is always an inspiring botanizing ground, along the ridge southward. One has a fine view of the purple mass of Mt. Diablo and Las Tranpas Ridge across the way, while the immediate foreground hills of Moraga are the most beautiful green, such as they are not before or after. _ I have always called Thorn Hill the top of the Kohler Grade in the main range, but I suspect it is really the hill near the Dinger place ----- No. 6229b. Ribes californicum H. & A. Strawberry Canon.
