June 27, 1863: Dana Meadows
[Today] we moved on and camped about three miles from the summit of Mono Pass, at an altitude of 9,800 feet—like the other camps, picturesque enough. I went on the summit of the pass to measure it—it is over 10,700 feet. The night was cold and everything froze up hard, but a bright camp fire cheered the evening.Specimens collected: Potentilla drummondii subsp. breweri; Sedum roseum subsp. integrifolium; Ribes lacustre; Antennaria alpina; Streptanthus tortuosus; Draba albertina; Eriogonum ovalifolium var. nivale; Erigeron pygmaeus; Salix planifolia subsp. planifolia; Carex filifolia var. erostrata.
