Beckwith Survey Question

From: "Jerry Lohry" xplornevada@yahoo.com

I have a question ... about the Gunnison-Beckwith survey. The map they compiled shows that the survey team went into the northern end of the Black Rock Desert (Mud Lakes) as far as High Rock Canyon. Their portrayal of the topography of that area also leads me to believe they traveled there. But Beckwith's journal only documents their surveying the southern part of the Black Rock Desert.

Do you know whether all or part of their crew journeyed into the High Rock Canyon area, and where I can find documentation on this?
