Ebbetts Pass 03

Camp 131

[Today] we climbed one of the volcanic pinnacles near camp, over nine thousand feet high, from which we had a grand and very extensive view. We spent the afternoon in camp, and had a bright camp fire in the evening. The night was clear and there was no frost, although the temperature sank to 25° F.

Specimens collected: Carex microptera; Carex heteroneura var. heteroneura; Achillea millefolium.
