Overview

This is an OCR edition with typos.
Excerpt from book:
To the Gulf of Cortez About a year ago, my brother, who is a very sagacious physician, advised me to take the fresh liver of a mountain sheep for certain nervous symptoms which were troublesome. None of the local druggists could fill the prescription, and so it was decided that I should seek the materials in person. With me went my friend J. B., the pearl of companions, and we began the campaign by outfitting at San Diego, with a view to exploring the resources of the sister republic in the peninsula of Lower California. Lower California is very different from Southern California. The latter is—well, a paradise, or something of that kind, if you believe the inhabitants, of whom I am an humble fraction. The former is what you may please to think. At San Diego we got a man, a wagon, four mules and the needed provisions and kitchen —all hired at reasonable rates, except the provisions and kitchen, which we bought.Then we tried to get a decent map, but were foiled. The Mexican explorer will find the maps of that country a source of curious interest. Many of them are large and elaborately mounted on cloth, spreading to a great distance when unfolded. The political divisions are marked with a tropical profusion of bright colors, which is very fit. A similar sense of fitness and beauty leads the designer to insert mountain ranges, rivers and towns where they best please the eye, and I have had occasion to consult a map which showed purely ideal rivers flowing across a region where nature had put the divide of the highest range in the State. My furniture contained a hundred cartridges, a belt I always carry, given by a friend, with a bear's head on the buckle (a belt which has held, before I got it, more fatal bullets than any other west of the Rockies), and my usual rifle.

    Leaders den/Skyledge

    The leaders den is a cave and is up so high it has a path along the rock wall leading up to it. The path keeps going a few fox lengths and stops. If you look up and forward from the end of the path, there is a little ledge that sticks out. The ledge is called Skyledge. It is where the leader stands to address the clan. The deputy and medicine cat must sit on the path just below Skyledge during the time the leader is addressing their clan. Insid the leaders den/cave is a scoop in the earth for the leaders nest in one corner. There is a small tree just inside the den entrance for security. There are ferns around the tree and on the outside corners of the entrance. There is lichen haning down as a curtain in front of the den entrance.
