Jepson Field Book volume 31 page 148
Description:
Upper Stanislaus River, Middle [Fork], ----------  sees the Stanislaus River and beyond and up the heights of the Dardanelles, positive landmarks in a region rather destitute of them in the main forest belt. Along the Patterson grade from about 6400 feet to 6200 feet occurs a little patch of the Douglas Fir, large trees. We come to a high slope covered with chaparral: Arctostaphylos patula Ceanothus Ceanothuis integerrimus (a little) Prunus emarginata Castanopsis sempervirens (a little) This is a characteristic upper montane chaparral and very different from ::::::::: [Middle] Fork, Tuolumne Co. July 17, 1915 ----------  the chaparral below the Yellow Pine belt, being much lower and the individual shrubs more isolated and far more widely spreading, being broad and usually rather low. - Prunus emarginata. I seemed to see every transition from the narrow-leaf form of chaparral areas to the broad-leaf form of stream banks which latter becomes almost a tree. -- Patterson Grade.    Along the river, which we strike at Brightmans Flat, the country is far more rugged and picturesque. The river for the most part flows in a narrow cleft or channel with rocky walls
