157 The left fork ascending of 4th Yo Sem [Yosemite] trib [tributary] is remarkable for the bareness & openness of its valley it has 2 fine falls & 1very grand cascade about half way up. Its stream has not yet worn itself a well marked channel running as it does on domes [sketch] It has many [precipitous] fronts on west side because there the ice pressed harder & wherever a weak place allowed it broke through because the ice wished to flow more westerly than the N 30 E clvg [cleavage] (over)
