July 17, 1863: Sonora Pass

Sonora Pass 02

Camp 126

[Today] we came on up the pass and camped at a little grassy flat, near the summit of Sonora Pass, at the altitude of 9,450 feet—surely a high camp. The night was very clear, and it froze very hard. I slept very cold, which led to a severe rheumatic attack the next day.

Specimens collected: Eriogonum umbellatum var. covillei; Ivesia gordonii; Cymopterus cinerarius.
