Tuolumne Meadows

Camp 117

[Today] we were in no hurry to rise after our yesterday’s labors, so we lay “in bed” until the bright sun shone into the valley and melted the heavy frost from our blankets. It was a lovely morning—the sky of the deepest blue—at this great height—not a cloud in sight. We botanized, etc., during the morning, and in the afternoon returned here to Soda Springs. On our way we saw a large wolf, the only wild animal of any considerable size that we have seen here.

Specimens collected: Heuchera rubescens var. rydbergiana; Juncus nevadensis; Epilobium oregonense; Cyperus squarrosus; Luzula parviflora; Carex hoodii; Carex heteroneura var. heteroneura; Carex multicostata; Carex specifica.
