Dear Maddog Bill,
Much appreciate your efforts with a really great story. Sounds like the Beekeeper did not have much use for maps, I think we would be safe in saying he discovered Saline Valley. Did he harvest the honey and did he sell it or was it for his own use? Any pictures? I assume he has died, if so when and do you know where he is buried? Those winter treks over the Inyos must have been mighy chilly, wonder what his gear looked like? Learning and thinking of the Beekeeper has raised my spirits, thanks vey much for your time and I hope we learn more about the Beekeeper of McElvoy Canyon. You have performed a real service.
