September 25, 1861: Mount Diablo

September 25, 2011

Camp 57

Pacific Sedum 01

Sedum spathulifolium; by Tom Hilton, on Flickr

[Today] Professor Whitney and I climbed on foot a side spur, very steep and rugged, some 3,200 or 3,500 feet high, a much harder day’s work than the last, and a much hotter one.

Specimens collected: Juncus xiphioides; Juniperus californica; Eriogonum nudum var. auriculatum; Sedum spathulifolium; Quercus wislizeni.

    Tom – just found this from Andy Johnson’s FB post. What a fantastic idea, and what a spectacular job you are doing! I’m stuck here in the Midwest, and reading through your blog helps with the California homesickness. I look forward to reading through all the past posts, and keeping up as the trip continues. Thanks!
