  Canyon in the Kingston Mountains.
In May 1998, I hiked up into this canyon in search of Kingston Mountains Ivesia (Ivesia patellifera). The purpose was to collect a fresh specimen for DNA studies by Barbara Ertter who studies this genus. It took me over an hour to climb up the boulder-strewn and rattlesnake-infested wash to the place shown here. Unfortunately, I chickened out when faced with climbing the slick rock face on the left. Back in the Herbarium, looking at this picture, we decided that I had walked right past the Ivesia, and didn't see it. Oh well ... maybe next year.
