Description tone by the whiteness of the mortar cementing the courses of masonry. PRAIRIE DOG HOLLOW-INDIAN CREEK Our day's journey was but twenty-four miles, and lay through what might by courtesy be called a wooded country. At the summit of each little pass we found ourselves in a thicket of cedars, so ragged and forlorn, and so evidently small for their age, that they looked as if a forest had been set out on the plain and buried to the neck in drifting sand. The road was rough, for the sand but partially concealed the ledges of volcanic rock we were crossing- "rocks full of bubbles," as the children called them. We were now not far east of the Nevada mining district, and a halt was made on one of the summits to let us see "where we were," while the tired horses took breath. On our left a great ragged snow-streaked mountain was pointed out as "Baldy," at whose foot lay the Bullionville gold-mining region.46 On the right, among a range of gravel mountains, rose up one all cliffs and precipices "serrated deeply, five-parted, conspicuous," as the manuals of botany have it; its top resembling the crater of a volcano, which it probably was. This mountain remained in sight all day, its hard features never undistinguishable from the softer profiles of its fellows. Below us lay the dusty plain, dotted far with white-topped wagons, bound for Pioche. Beyond, the 46Baldy Peak, in the Tushar Mountains, is 12,000 feet high. On the east slope were located Marysvale and Kimberley. Marysvale became the southern-most point of the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad which served the mines of the region. 81
