Abstract

This journal documents Blackwelder's field trips to several western American states including Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Utah, and South Dakota to collect insects. These field notes document two separate trips, one that took place from 14 June to 2 September 1960 and another from 24-29 June 1962. Several maps of these locations were pasted into this journal and show the route he traveled. Each location in which specimen were collected is given a station number. There are 233 stations. This journal contains 112 pages.

[[preprinted]] 2 [[/preprinted]] [[underlined]] Station 4. [[/underlined]] [[line]] [[margin]] June 16. Thur. [[/margin]] Boulder & vicinity. Went out south of town to Chautauqua Mesa, where lupines were profuse. Learned to spot the eggs of "blues" on the underside of leaves and on buds and spent the morning collecting them, to be mailed back to SIU for rearing. Got 100+. Also found mature larvae, always on buds and associated with ants (two species). Collected several dozen adults, as well as miscellaneous bugs, bees, damsel flies, & beetles. After lunch (& purchase of hat, cap, sunburn lotion), drove up Flagstaff Mt. road about a mile, elev. about 1000 ft. above Boulder. [[strikethrough]] Station 5 (see above). [[/strikethrough]] From Sta. 4 we mailed back 133 eggs. [[margin]] L [[/margin]] Majority were [[underlined]] Plebejus icarioides [[/underlined]]. A few [[margin]] L [[/margin]] were [[underlined]] Phaedrotes piasus [[/underlined]]. Both species were seen to oviposit on the same host plant, but [[underlined]] piasus [[/underlined]] seems to select buds, whereas [[underlined]] icarioides [[/underlined]] will lay on leaves, stems, and flowers. Other insects include 6 Raphidioidea, a large black sawfly and Cerambycid black with yellow transverse stripes. Will keep the mature larvae for parasite emergence. Kept the immatures with the associated ants. [[margin]] L [[/margin]] Host lupines were collected. [[insertion, in pencil]] Ligdamus [[/insertion]] [[underlined]] Station 5. [[/underlined]] Flagstaff Mt. road about 1 mile above Chautauqua Mesa, 1000 ft. above Boulder. A few lupines. Found very little except a [[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] 3 [[/preprinted]] Sta. 5-7 [[strikethrough]] green or blue Meloid. [[/strikethrough]] few bees, bugs, beetles. No eggs or larvae [[line]] Then returned to Boulder and drove up the main canyon to the west - to Nederland. Then on up a road toward Caribou - a sky area. The car simply wouldn't pull the grade. [[line]] [[underlined]] Station 6. [[/underlined]] Caribou, above Nederland, Boulder Co., 8800 feet, along an abandoned railroad embankment now used as a road. Lupines inconspicuous but abundant. 65 eggs found on buds. May have been 2 spp. of lupines (both collected). Many flowers of many sorts. Collected a few spiders (2 bright yellow), two bees under dung, several black spiders also under the dry cow dung, metallic Meloids. [[line]] [[line]] Still at La Salle Motel, Boulder.

[[line]] From Estes Park followed Moraine Park road, crossed little moraine to w. end of Deer Mt., then took "new" Trail Ridge Road, which climbs to [[strikethrough]] 11,200 [[/strikethrough]] [[insertion]] 12,183 [[/insertion]] feet on the windswept ridge, then drops to Milner Pass at 10,759 feet as the road swings south to Grand Lake. Had a good view up our old valley north of the small moraine, but couldn't see any cabin. The view from Trail Ridge Road is grand. Came out at Grand Lake on US 34, then west on US 40. Rabbit Ears Pass was closed for construction, so we took the Gore Pass Road to the south - rte. 84. It was dark all the way to Steamboat Springs, where we found a VFW convention and all rooms filled. So went on to Craig. Speedometer - 10255. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] 5 [[/preprinted]] Sta. 8-11 [[margin]] June 18. Sat. [[/margin]] [[underlined]] Station 10.

[[preprinted]] 6 [[/preprinted]] [[underlined]] Station 12. [[/underlined]] Vernal, Utah. At lights. 2 crickets and 1 trichopteran. [[line]] Drove through part of the Uinta Basin, formed by the upended and truncated Mesozoic and Paleozoic beds separated by erosion from the massif of the Uinta Mountains. These beds are colorful, and continue into Dinosaur National Monument to the east. The Uintas visible from Vernal or north of it are rounded and tree-covered, with sharp box canyons and valleys. Farther back, they are more rugged and patched with snow. Highest peak is Kingo Peak, 13,498 ft., which is also the highest point in Utah. [[margin]] June 19. Sun. [[/margin]] Continued on US 40 about 20 mi. west of Duchesne, Utah, [[insertion]] speedometer 10516. [[/insertion]] then north on Rte. 208 10 mi., northwest on Rte. 35 along Duchesne River. This seems to be a continuation of Uinta Basin. For miles the telephone poles carried TV lead-in dual cable with connections to every house or ranch. This road heads across the southwest corner of the Uintas. [[line]] [[underlined]] Station 13. [[/underlined]] 14 mi. n.w. of Tabiona. 7320 ft. In Wolf Creek Canyon.

One pair of the blues in copula. Red & black Clerid. Elev. 7425 ft. [[line]] Continued on rte. 35 to Kamas. Had a second lunch and doubled back on rte. 150 into The Uintas. Mileage at Kamas was 10,575. At 10,590 arrived at Soapstone Guard Station. 7800 feet. [[strikethrough]] [[underlined]] Station 15. [[/underlined]] [[/strikethrough]] The "guard" didn't know of any Forest Service building we could use for an office. He is a temporary employee under the ranger. We then continued over the pass to Mirror Lake, and on the way had a splendid view of the real Uintas, very rugged and grand. The guard at Mirror Lake also knew of no lupine, so we went back over the pass. My father did some geology in the Uintas in the first decade of the century, but I can't recall hearing any details about that trip.
[[preprinted]] 8 [[/preprinted]] [[margin]] June 20. Mon. [[/margin]] Camped at 7500 ft. on Mirror Lake Road in Uinta Mts., a few miles below Soapstone Guard Station.

Had lunch with Don M Rees and A R Gaufin, at the Union Cafeteria. Then found Steven Janson, who has been marking blues in advance. [[strikethrough]] Dro [[/strikethrough]] [[line]] Drove up Big Cottonwood Canyon, where Steve demonstrated "his" marking method, using red India ink. The specimen marked flew normally, but never very far. She seemed worn. After first flight of 4 feet, she rested for 20 minutes, and then flew only when directly disturbed, for only a few feet, seeming to be impaired or upset. The marked wing seemed to be damaged.

[[pre-printed]] 14 [[/pre-printed]] [[margin]] June 26. Sun. [[/margin]] Spent the morning mounting insects, cleaning bottles, and preparing for more travels. In the afternoon I called on Arthur L Crawford, his wife, and their granddaughter Marjorie. Stayed for supper and until 9:30 chatting with Arthur. He's always interesting, and we ranged from politics to philosophy to evolution and back to L.D.S and Catholicism as authoritarian religions compared to Protestantism in general. Mrs. Crawford particularly emphasized their fondness for EB and their indebtedness to him for past help and friendliness. Home in time to write a letter to EB & JBB. John to his aunts', Emily & Dean Henroid, and then took his grandmother, [[strikethrough]] ( [[/strikethrough]] Ella Owens, and his mother to see a 95-year-old lady from Eureka.

[[preprinted]] 16 [[/preprinted]] Last Friday from Johnson Pass we headed southeast to visit Eureka, where John was born. We turned up Church Street looking the Downey's former home - birthplace - but the house was gone and not even foundations visible. We inquired directions from a young lady who turned out to be a former student of John's at Utah U, now married to a former friend of John, Frank McCabe, who worked for Continental Mine Co. of Eureka. He had just been a bad auto accident. We then drove back west to the cemetery, where a Mr. Webb told us much about the arrangements. John's grandfather's grave is there - in "Catholic Row" - but we couldn't find it. (Later told that it is unmarked. Found the Owens' (maternal grandmother) plot, where her son Frank is buried. Found plot of another John C. Downey - no relation. He was also an electrician at the mines, as was John's father, but the latter was also Chief of Police of Eureka. Mr. Webb recognized [[strikethrough]] the [[/strikethrough]] right Downey as: "Oh, yeah. The Cop! The guy that got the Legion of Honor." The Croix de Guerre with six palms awarded personally by Foch. Also the Medal Militaire. Also the Silver Star from Pershing. Recommended also for Congressional Medal of Honor, but it was never awarded. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] 17 [[/preprinted]] He was an electrician stringing communication lines, but sometimes he had to carry messages as a runner. On three such trips he was gassed, and died of this in February 1933 in the Veteran's Hospital in Tucson, Ariz. He was buried with full military honors in Salt Like City, and the family rode with the casket from Tucson. We continued northeast to Santaquin, east of the south end of Utah Lake, where we stopped for a few minutes to see June Downey Stewart, [[insertion]] ? [[/insertion]] who is a cousin. She had seen the grave within 3 years. Then on to Provo where we stopped again to see Jessie Downey [[(male symbol)]] who is June's brother, another cousin, who was living in Tucson with the J C Downeys the year in the hospital. John's mother is Cleone Owens Downey. Her mother is Ella Owens whom we visited several times. (We stayed with Cleone while in Salt Lake.) She is 82, very alert, hears well, sees better than she admits, plays bridge, lives alone, and has a remarkable memory even for recent things. Cousin Charlotte Edlin (daughter of Emily & Dean) called one evening. Another daughter, Francella, lives in Boise, Idaho.
[[preprinted]] 18 [[/preprinted]] [[margin]] June 27. Mon. [[/margin]] Up early to pack, do some errands, and leave for [[strikethrough]] Utah [[/strikethrough]] Nevada. Went to University to borrow 6 Schmidt boxes, as [[strikethrough]] I [[/strikethrough]] we have filled the five we brought. Then met Steve Durrant. Waited an hour for the mailman, and in the meantime went down to Zion Bookstore. Couldn't find out anything about a rumoured history of the Tintic Mining area (Eureka), but saw some interesting things. A first edition of Spencer's Principles of Biology ($17.50), a volume called "East of the Sun and West of the Moon" by Kermit Roosevelt, Patton's Evolution of the Vertebrates which I snatched up for $5.00, an Italian dictionary, a Portuguese one, a Swedish one, all of which were new and $4.00 each, and a new book on the mountains of Wyoming. Looked interesting but [[double underlined]] may [[/double underlined]] be primarily concerned with recreation. John coveted a copy of Wallace's [[line drawn]] but resisted it.

Nowhere did we see any garnets, although the schist was present. The mountains are much more rugged than I remembered them, with water in abundance flowing out on both sides. There are said to be at least two "roads" up canyons on the east side. The Harrison Pass road on the west side comes out south of Jiggs. The Kleckner ranch was not clearly evident, but one was labelled K. I saw no Post Office at Jiggs. The valley to the west is entirely different from that to the east.

They have a very large cabin cruiser, but just had an accident and had the boat on a trailer ready to take to Jackson for repairs. In Yellowstone we made no stops, but saw many black bears, many foolish people feeding or teasing them.

[[preprinted]] 44 [[/preprinted]] At Colter's Bay we went to get a cabin - $15. Ouch! So we looked at the tent houses - $5.00 with no screening but bunks with foam mattresses. We got the last one. Then went back down to watch them put the boat back in the water to adjust it on the trailer. Took only half an hour, although it had to be done with a long chain so the car could stay out of water. Had supper at the large cafeteria with the Ivers's and Mike's girl friend Norma. While the rest had a beer, Mr. Ivers and I stood outside and talked. He had been in the Sawtooth Valley in 1903, had mined in many of the mountains, and now lives on a 24 ft. cruiser - Lake Meade in winter, Jackson Lake in summer. He once hired a man who had driven a wagon from Salt Lake to Yellowstone and the Tetons in 1884, painting water colors all the way and keeping a journal, a copy of which he had given to Mr. Ivers. [[margin note]] 141 mi. [[/margin]] Ivers was until recently a member of an exclusive hunting club owning many thousands of acres of marshland around Bear River in northern Utah. The members were all millionaires - mostly multimillionaire oil executives, - Ivers said too rich for his money. But he was president of it just before he got out. The members mostly flew in in private planes, getting two days hunting per week-end. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] 45 [[/preprinted]] Sta. 70 - 71 [[margin]] July 6. Wed.

Just as the red beds appear, there is a road keeping due west. It passes over the slaty beds described above, over the escarpment of the red beds, across a valley, and up a ridge by means of 22 switchbacks. We probably didn't get near the top, very steep and very rough. Canyons on each side of the ridge; pine trees; no lupine. Beautiful view each over hogbacks.

56 The Sierra Madres brought back few memories from my 1925 visit (35 years ago) The pass is at least a mile from Bridger Peak, with no sign of a road or even trail over to it. Couldn't see whether there was a fire lookout on top. Didn't see the old aerial tramway that ran southward across a rocky valley. The mountains can't be seen much from the northeast, but they must be more prominent from the south. They give a grand view of the mountains in northern Colorado, exaggerating their size. Just over the pass, facing a little south of west, a steep slope leads several thousand feet into a beautiful green valley, park, with a [[strike]] li [[/strike]] lake several small moraines, large meadows, and some roads. The only road that could have led to it was unmarked but was only five miles or so below the pass. This is one of the most attractive spots we've seen on the whole trip. [[left margin]] July 10. Sun.

Today took samples of the non-blooming variety of lupine, which is in large beds separate from the fields of blooming ones and also scattered among them. I walked around a small hill at the pass and found the road that goes up Bridger Peak, 4 miles. It also goes to some ranch 14 miles. Other branches go to Battle Cemetary, etc. Looks navigable. On the way down (west again) we turned off three miles below the pass on the "road" that goes down into the valley. It was a mistake with this car, although apparently quite a few cars do go down. We barely made it back out. A pick-up truck with standard transmission would have little trouble. [[underline]] Station 89 [[/underline]] Put by mistake on p. 55. e. of Savery, Wyo.

58 [[underline]] Station 91 [[/underline]]. Battle Lake, Wyo. Sierra Madre Mts. down in valley below the pass. (Belongs on p. 55) We came through very interesting country today south of Craig, Colo. Mostly down narrow valleys between upended strata striking north & south. Everything covered with green vegetation, the hills with scrubby cedar and an occasional small patch of pines. The valleys mostly cultivated and obviously well-watered. Several of the hills to the southwest had very even and straight ridges sloping down to the north. Looked like rift valleys but were probably erosion behind hogbacks. Took one photo just as the sun set, showing the ridges trimmed with sunlight and the rest dark. Lupine occurred occasionally in isolated clumps over much of this route. It had rained in the mid-afternoon, so there was no use stopping for blues or even eggs. John phoned Noreen and got a report from Woodie: 1350 eggs received, 155 living larvae (hatched), 356 hatched en route, 300 parasites emerged (115 from Harrison Pass), 70 lupines planted.

Scenery was fine, much glaciation, rocky peaks above timberline, roaring streams. At the lodge we stopped for coffee and asked the waitress if there was any of the blue flower called lupine around. She said there had been and we looked out the window behind the car and saw a dozen masses of it! None down the road for two miles. Only scattered small patches of it on the Leadville road. All motels in Leadville were either full or had doubled their rates, so we went to the Vendome Hotel. Had little to mount, so we postponed it and went to a movie.
[preprinted]] 62 [[/preprinted]] So much topography has flashed before us and been replaced by more the next minute that it's been impossible even to note most of it. Today several large snow slides where trees were down and piles of snow still survived because of the great mixture of mud, leaves and rubble. Yesterday a long sloping ridge near Rio Blanco, which exactly paralleled the edge of the plateau, - looked like a rift valley but probably was more of a hog-back. The photo should show several parallel ridges in the background. Glaciated valleys with hanging side valleys and moraines, especially in Battle Lake Valley in the Sierra Madres. Valleys cut off by a lateral moraine which was later channeled by the side stream [[strikethrough]] of a [[/strikethrough]] out of line with its original position. Mesas, buttes, hog backs, cliffs formed by harder beds on top or tilted. The irregular erosion of soft material, often greenish or red, by water or solution on steep slopes.

[[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] 65 [[/preprinted]] Desert pavement was noted in the areas of badlands southeast of Ten Sleep, Wyoming. As we were generally looking for sagebrush country, we seldom stopped where the desert pavement would be seen. Sand dunes were not seen on a large scale. A long valley through tan and greenish apparently unconsolidated materials was that of the Salmon River north of the Sawtooth Valley in Idaho. Surface lava flows such as in southern Idaho between Mountain Home and Ketchum. A rounded exfoliating "granitic" dome a quarter mile across and almost hemi-spherical called Independence Rock east of Casper. Many other sorts of outliers and erosion remnants. Teapot Rock near Teapot Dome, as a carved remnant. Jagged ridges apparently caused by cirques on both sides, as in the Sawtooth Mts., or by other erosion. Narrow box canyons were seen in the southeastern Big Horns, above the red hogbacks. These were very steep. More normal ones occur in the lava bed country of Idaho.

[[/strikethrough]] broke the frame of his net, so we'll have to find a machine shop.(The third frame we have just isn't usable because the skiff net can't be removed.) The break was caused by the necessity of slamming the net down over specimens, as they had a way of escaping otherwise. With mail for both of us came a telegram from Woody that he was running out of lupine to feed [[insertion]] to [[/insertion]] the newly hatched larvae. John agreed to Airmail some, but on figuring times, it seemed likely that [[strikethrough]]? [[/strikethrough]] no parcel could be delivered before Thursday, and we [[underlined]] could [[/underlined]] be home by Thursday ourselves without cutting the trip short particularly. [[end page]] [[start page]] preprinted 67 so we picked up 15 1-gallon jars from the hotel kitchen, counted up four plastic bags and an ice chest, and figured we could get [[underlined]] some [[/underlined]] lupine through in as good condition as the Airmai. Left Teadville at 11 a.m. to go out through Colorado Springs. After we went over the first pass, began to watch for lupine, although it was raining most of the time. Found one spot in the South Platt valley and filled five jars. From then on saw none at all. By ten miles up the canyon from Colorado Springs we were worried that we wouldn't find any more at all. Then in a roadcut one bunch appeared, and it turned out to be a dozen bunches there and more along an old road. Filled the ice chest and two more jars. From then on saw none. Got 10 labs of cracked ice at Manitou. Decided to follow HS 28 So. US 0. We phoned F Martin Brown from Manitou, but were told that he is in Ouray and won't be back for a week. At Limon I let John drive, as a special favor, so it's his driving that is responsible for the wobbly writing.
[[preprinted]] 68 [[/preprinted]] "Variation and evolution in Plebejus icarioides." This is the title of John's project and NSF grant. This species was described in 1852 by Boisduval, from one specimen from "California." Since then 24 names have been applied to this species or to portions of it. Early work by Barnes & McDunnough and by Hovanitz have straightened out some of the synonymy and are the basis for the 13 subspecies commonly retained. John's original interest (Master's thesis at Utah) was an attempt to verify the validity of the subspecies and to determine the characters of taxonomic importance. It included all available material, - not very much. Distribution in western N.A.: seacoast to 10,000+ feet in Calif., Utah, Colorado, north to Skagway and Lake Louise, south to Orizaba in Mexico. Mostly in Canadian and Transition zones. The morphological approach, was further extended and used for Ph.D. thesis at Davis. The genetic approach was limited [[strikethrough]] due [[/strikethrough]] by lack of knowledge of breeding, habits, etc. The basic approach was a statistical comparison of structures, both in and between populations. Parameters of structural variation were plotted, for over 100 different populations, throughout the range of the species. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] 69 [[/preprinted]] Both museum and field-collected material was included. As a result of this analysis of the 100 populations, he had some idea of the range of variation [[strikethrough]] fo [[/strikethrough]] of each of the characters studied - some 25 or so, and which were genetically and which environmentally influenced. Information on life history and rearing techniques became adequate to check these results in laboratory, which is the current problem. The present study is to include comparisons of populations from many parts of the range all taken the same year (first year) and comparison of newly collected populations from the sites of the original 100 populations. Also to [[strikethrough]] study [[/strikethrough]] compare populations by rearing [[strikethrough]] fr [[/strikethrough]] in the laboratory under identical conditions the eggs collected in the field. Other data obtained includes host specificity, parasitism, onset and termination of larval diapause, ant associations. [[underlined]] Plebejus [[/underlined]] is one of 750 generic names in the Lycaenidae. Many others show the same range of variation. Some 3 score of these belong in subfamily Plebejinae. About 100 Holarctic Plebejinae (sp. & subsp.).

[[pre-printed]] 74 [[/pre-printed]] [[left margin]] Aug. 30 Tues. [[/left margin]] From Buffalo via US 16 over southern end of Big Horns to Ten Sleep and Worland, ^ [[insertion]] US 20 [[/insertion]] to Greybull, Cody, & West Yellowstone. The main range is visible only as you start up the road, as one soon turns south through park areas where there are no views. This is mostly stream and mud flow gravels, few outcrops. Only at the top of the pass, 9666 ft. do the pre-Cambrian gneisses crop [[strikethrough]] in [[/strikethrough]] out in large jointed masses. The gravels were probably derived from glacial gravels above. In the Ten Sleep Canyon, there are high cliff of massive Mississippian limestone (dolomite), chert, sandstone, shale, intermined. The only glaciation was in the upper Ten Sleep valley, running south, with the end probably where the canyon starts - to west. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[pre-printed]] 75 [[/pre-printed]] Just west of Ten Sleep, across the red valley from the mouth of the canyon, a bright red cliff with nearly horizontal beds, Triassic Chugwater, gives way very suddenly (horizontally) to the variegated gray-green Morrison (upper Jurassic). Must be a sharp fault or overturn, followed by a sharp valley. This is just to the [[strikethrough]] left of [[/strikethrough]] right of the road - Morrison on left. Farther to the left there is a [[strikethrough]] s [[/strikethrough]] resistant bed showing occasionally in the cliffs, forming [[strikethrough]] tr [[/strikethrough]] ledges with triangular caves beneath. Photo of these ledges. The Morrison gives way to Cretaceous and these to Eocene. All gently dipping west, all fine-grained shales. No gravel or desert pavement. Evidently very dry but enough plants to keep wind erosion down. Oil wells scattered all over this area, some new, some pumping. In the afternoon we turned west toward Cody, climbed out of the river bottom onto the whitish or variegated Cretaceous or Eocene shales. This continued with some bluffs for 100 miles. At Cody we saw Heart Mountain 10 mi. to north. It stands alone, almost a butte on top, an erosion remnant, but actually of complicated structure - the Heart Mountain Overthrust. The Paleozoic ^[[insertion]] (?)[[/insertion]] rocks on top of the Cretaceous/Tertiary, moved laterally several miles (eastward) and then eroded.
[[pre-printed]] 76 [[/pre-printed]] Just west of Cody we entered the Shoshone Canyon. It passes through many miles of mountains forming a large area rather than a single range (Absarokas). The canyon is lined with the cliffs and the Salus slopes, mostly in Eocene volcanic brecchia. Many elaborate pinnacles, with recognizable shapes. Occasionally a 6-foot dike crosses as right angles to the road, making a sharp outcrop up the sides of the canyon. These pryochlastics range from fine ash to large fragments of rock, worked after the explosion emission by mud-flames, etc. into allimial fans. These sometimes show stratification, and sometimes folding, but very prominent vertical jointing. The joint blocks are caused by shrinking especially with twisting. Numerous side canyons seem to show similar conditions over a wide area. EB was interested in seeing evidence of glaciation inside Yellowstone Park. We saw not one single definitive piece of evidence. There was supposed to have a glacial cap over the whole plateau, perhaps built up from neighboring ranges. If so, EB thinks it must have been old - probably second epoch (the earliest one recognized in the Rockies. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] 77 [[/preprinted]] [[image - map consisting of portions of Montana, South Dakota, Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, and California, as well as the country of Mexico - with several routes highlighted in different shades of color]]
[[preprinted]] 78 [[/preprinted]] The fourth epoch (Wisconsin) would be seen in unmodified moraines, usually very evident. The third epoch might appear in moraines or in road cuts, but only "possible" example of this were seen. [[left margin]] Aug. 31 Wed. [[/left margin]] We stopped briefly in the geyser basins. 70 Hebgen Reservoir and Montana-Yellowstone Earthquake Area. Saw what is visible from the north end, including the "fault scarps", the Hebgen Dam damage, the road breaks, the new lake covering the road but 50 feet lower than the original level (because of a cut in the landslide made by the Forest Service). The Sopo sheets I brought along were not very illuminating. We decided not to go around to see the landslide from the southwest. My cousin Justin Hill was camping in the area at the time of the earthquake. There were so located that they got out without assistance or difficulty. Back to West Yellowstone and out to Idaho Falls by US 20. Same route west to Arco and then southwest to Craters of the Moon National Monument. This is a well arranged exhibit of 75 square miles of lava flows, cinder cones, craters, splatter cones, canes, etc. Exceedingly rugged, but with good roads and trails. A fantastic place. Photos. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] 79 [[/preprinted]] Just north of the Monument is an east-west line of hills/mountains with a young pattern of valleys but few gulleys. The entire surface, not very abrupt anyway, was singularly smoothed. EB judged that sand from the plane had blown onto these hillsides and literally buried the gulleys. I took two photos. Also on the edge of the Monument I took photos of a small pressure ridge on top of the sheet lava, which split open radially upon cooling. Also a view of the very cliffy mountain face northwest of Arco, formed by alternating hard and soft beds of limestone (z) (Paleogoic?). Coming west from Idaho Falls we passed Twin Buttes, one obviously a volcanic cone, the other presumably also one but not looking like it. Also a much larger masses called Big Butte, which also shows evidence of one or several craters. Rte. 20 from W. Yellowstone to Idaho Falls, to Arco, and the Craters of the Moon. Then back to Arco. [[end page]]
[[preprinted]] 80 [[/preprinted]] [[margin]] Sep. 1. Thurs. [[/margin]] From Arco north on rte 93ALT to Challis, then southwest on 93 along the Salmon River to Sawtooth Valley & Shoshone, then Rte. 20 to Boise and on to Caldwell, Ida. Northeast of Arco along the Lost River range, which is rugged, with [[strikethrough]] cl [[/strikethrough]] high outcrops of nearly vertically tilted beds - probably early Paleozoic. Along the face there were triangular facets at the end of ridges between gulleys, apparently along a fault line. Farther south the outcrops were [[strikethrough]] only [[/strikethrough]] mostly high up on the mountains and the lower slopes were smooth slopes and rounded surfaces, very steep for alluvium and probably creping. In many places an "eyebrow" line across the base of the range seemed also to show a fault line. These foothills and some out in the valley farther north are devoid of any but very small and inconspicuous vegetation. They are somewhat irregular in arrangement and smooth all over. One large pair of alluvial fans showed overlapping due to higher level of one. This [[strikethrough]] w [[/strikethrough]] one seemed to head up into a cirque, possibly with a terminal moraine high up, right at the outlet of the cirque. There seem to be old cirques on many of the peaks, but not very definite ones. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] 81 [[/preprinted]] The Salmon River Canyon above Challis is similar to the lower part, very evenly V-shaped but winding - the curves evidently determined by features older than the river. Most slopes are talus, sometimes with low vegetation. Often there were narrow channels called rubble stripes that seem to be shallow gulleys later [[strikethrough]] than [[/strikethrough]] filled with the rubble. Sometimes little mud flows have come down on top of the rubble. In the Sawtooth Valley we saw the long moraines on the west side and apparently at least one from the east. One of the west apparently crossed the valley and may have dammed it temporarily. [[margin]] Sept. 2. Fri. [[/margin]] From Caldwell, Ida. on rte. 20 to Burns and then south to Alturas on US395. Following the Malheur River, after a few miles of monotonous country, began to see many of what EB calls "rubble stripes", narrow and shallow lines of angular talus that [[insertion]] each [[/insertion]] fill [[strikethrough]] s [[/strikethrough]] a small gulley, probably made in a single storm. They are frequently all over a hillside but always follow the straight line [[strikethrough] bes [[/strikethrough]] caused by gravity. They are usually on steep slopes but sometimes are gentle slopes. Photo. There must be a source of the angular rubble, usually a lava outcrop.
[[preprinted]] 82 [[/preprinted]] A few miles north of Lakeview we came on a small playa [[insertion]] Buckaroo Lake [[/insertion]] (photo) and then noticed that the valley had very clear lake benches all around, probably nearly 200 feet high. At the south end these certainly topped the ridge around the end, and there was another playa in that valley. The south end of this second valley also seemed to be low enough to overflow but we found no evidence that it had. Right on this divide there was a fine example of a fault block slipping off the cliff onto the valley floor. The cliff is 2500 feet high, very abrupt, and we later on saw many slips. On this one the top surface was preserved although broken into several blocks. Photo. All day we were in old (Miocene) lava country, occasionally seeing soft light colored beds of volcanic ash. We thought we saw water flowing out of Goose Lake on the California / Oregon border, but it is supposed to be landlocked since 1869 (?). The stream certainly flowed away to the south - may have been spring-fed. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] 83 [[/preprinted]] [[blank page]]

While John is at mass, I'll note a few observations about [[underline]] P. icarioides [[/underline]] I seldom seem to "flush" it out by distributing the lupine. Instead, when I stand still a few minutes, one is likely to fly up. When one flies, often a second will fly up. [[end page]] [[start page]] 93 and the two will flit about for a few seconds. Sometimes another species of butterfly or moth will prompt this sudden brief flight. If a specimen is chased very far, it will suddenly disappear, apparently dropped to the ground. In a few cases I've found it, just resting with the wings folded. At such times it can be picked upon the fingers but doesn't take flight readily. The lupines that we've seen lately have been very local in distribution. Perhaps very abundant but disappearing in a mile or so. There sometimes is no apparent change in the environment. Most of the accompanying plants-"indicators"- are more widely ranging. The most profuse carpet of wild flowers we've seen anywhere was on the wind-swept top of Sentinal Butte. The variety and number of very low flowers was extreme. Our theme song has been "Ida, Sweet as Apple Cider", but now we also recognize as our patron saint, St. Ida of the Lupines.

[[/left margin]] The early mornings are beautiful; clear and crisp. Even down at Crested Butte snow-capped peaks are all around, and they are real peaks with clear cirques, much above timber-line. At Gothic the narrow valley is surrounded by steep cliffs rising up to 14,000 ft. peaks, largely snow-covered especially after the light snow on Wednesday evening. Wild flowers are profuse in some places, but paintbrush and columbine are not out yet. These valleys are all glaciated, except where there have been landslides, of which there are many. In places it looks as if there [[left margin]] 51 mi. [[/left margin]] had been an unconformity between two types of materials and the upper had slid off. Perhaps the slides are of older glacial materials that were resting on the ignious rocks. Some streams have cut deeply into the glacial valley bottom and then spread out enough to accommodate very elaborate meanderings. This area began to be developed for skiing in 1960 and now has several fine lodges, 3 lifts, a large jump. It has the facilities of aspen, but less development - smaller area so far. Only one full season so far, but that one was successful. Another lift is now planned. The area never lacks snow.
