June 13, 1862: Del Puerto Canyon

June 13, 2012

Camp 74

We were up at dawn [today], climbed a hill and got bearings sufficient for our purpose, then returned to camp, where we arrived just at night. At camp, we met three men lately from San Francisco, who gave us a “treat” of news—the evacuation of Corinth. They were on their way up the valley, on a vacation trip—one was a professor from Oakland College.

Specimens collected: Streptanthus breweri; Streptanthus glandulosus subsp. glandulosus.
