Despite the threat of deteriorating health that always hung over the couple, these interludes in Minnesota's wild areas, allowing each to pursue his or her own dearest passions, must have contributed much to Emily's remembrance of her Minnesota years as happy ones. And from them remain some early plant-distribution records for the state and what we believe to be the first paintings from nature of Minnesota's flora. Collecting Minnesota's Plants In 1884 Warren Upham's Catalogue of the Flora of Minnesota was published as part of the previous year's progress report of the state's Geological and Natural History Survey.

They were Karl Bodmer, the twenty-three-year-old Swiss artist who accompanied the naturalist Prince Maximilian von Wied-Neuwied (in the 1830s) and John James Audubon (in the 1840s). Their travels, in both cases on the Mississippi-Missouri waterway through the Dakotas to the edge of Montana, did not bring them into Minnesota Territory. Another painter who traveled in the United States was Marianne North, an English botanical artist who painted spectacular plants in their native habitats all over the world.

Work with the survey took him there; it placed him in an outdoor environment, which he cared for deeply; and he could be profitably occupied while seeking recovery from his illness. We are told that " 'camping out' seemed always to restore him. " During the summer of 1879 he was a member of the survey field party exploring the natural history of northern Minnesota, and during the winter following he worked in the laboratory, preparing microscopic sections and labeling and arranging specimens for the survey's growing natural history museum.
