As to the gold, don’t bother. The Jayhawkers DID NOT go to the summit of Pinto Peak, contrary to what John Southworth says in his book, “Death Valley in ’49.” Jerry Freeman, the fellow who found the bunk trunk, found it along the trail Southworth outlined in his book. Shortly before Jerry found the trunk, he interviewed Southworth and based on the book and the interview, Jerry found the trunk. (Strange things are done in the land of the blazing sun.”)
