"The local irregularities in attitude probably resulted from disruption during intrusion of the large biotite-hornblende syenite body against this contact. Local strong brecciation of layered rocks and intimate penetration by syenite along the west edge of the mafic and ultramafic complex also attest to the disruption effected by the syenite intrusion."

"Since that time men have always had a difficult time to get salt. They have to remove all their clothes and even beads–naked as when they were born–and go in quiet as can be. They must not speak a word or laugh or make fun, and then they can take all they wish. If they speak or laugh or make fun, they will stand just where they are and die. It is always a great deal of trouble to bring the salt."

"One of the largest and most stately timber trees of the world, the Sugar Pine occasionally reaches a diameter of 10 ft. and a height of 250 ft. The long, horizontal branches with pendent, pitch-encrusted cones at their tips make the mighty trees veritable "towers of jewels" in the sun."

"Where lakes had sparkled for endless miles, only sand and baked mud flats remained. The great southern meadows were gone and with them the large mammals they had sustained. Clouds of white dust swept upward from alkali-coated playas as winds built dunes of shifting sand; and under the glare of the summer sun, distance had no ending. And so, to the first white men who ventured there, the uncharted land seemed barren and forbidding–and they named it desert"
