Mono Lake, August 2008
|When I first read the field notes of Annie Alexander and Louise Kellogg, I was fascinated by the descriptions they wrote about the places they went and the plants and animals they found there. By publishing my field notes on the Internet I hope to follow a little bit in their tradition.|

Locations: North Table Mountain.
May 17, 1913. An immense boulder, accompanied by many small rocks,
rolled from the top of North Table Mountain into the Church Ditch
narrowly missing a rural mailman. It had rained heavily the preceding
night (VanHorn, 1972).

Locations: Kinney Run.
August 16, 1913. A flood on Kinney Run [Kenneys Creek] was caused
by a cloudburst [estimated 4 inches of rain in~ hour]. About $10,000
damage was sustained by homes, businesses, and bridges on Ford
Street (VanHorn, 1972).
Locations: Magpie Gulch.
September 6, 1913. Small floods occurred in several gulches in Golden.
The railroad tracks west of Golden were covered by tons of rock
and sand at Magpie Gulch [north side of Clear Creek, SW-4 sec.
28, T. 3 S., R. 70 W.] (VanHorn, 1972).

March 14, 1914. A large deposit of bitumen-soaked sandstone was
found near Turkey Creek south of Morrison (VanHorn, 1972).
May 2, 1914. At 4:00 a.m. Tuesday morning a few thousand tons of
rock slumped several yards and covered up the access road at the
Tramway Quarry [SE 1/4 sec. 22. T. 3 S., R. 70 W.] on North Table
Mountain. Heavy snow and rain have softened the "clay and ash."
The ditch company and the railroad experienced much trouble in
previous years when great sections of hillside moved slowly down
toward Clear Creek (VanHorn, 1972).
