Thanks,
Any more info on Marion Howard the "bee keeper" would be wonderful. Here is what little I can add at this point...there seems to be a monument to him on/near Mt Inyo.

"Departing Mt. Inyo about 2 PM, we descended about a quarter mile south to search for the relies Gail had told us about. It took us nearly half an hour to re-find this recently-established historical site. The plaque there reads - "This shelter dedicated to the spirit of Marion Howard, beekeeper of McElvoy Canyon 1965 -1980. His Inyo friends & BLM 1995". The site consists of this inscribed bronze plaque (nailed to a tree), an old shovel and axe, some stovepipes stacked wood stumps for burning and a small alcove/cave amongst the rocks with room for three people at the most."
From Desert Peaks section of the Sierra Club...
