This chapter looks at the Saline Valley expedition, as well as Alexander and Kellogg's adventures in the Sierra Nevada. According to Grinnell, Saline Valley was an unknown in the history of the Museum of Vertebrae Zoology. The discussion describes Alexander and Kellogg's trip to the valley, and reveals that they were trapped with some miners at Bunker Hill when the roads became blocked. Since Alexander was an avid letter writer, family and friends started to worry when her letters suddenly stopped. Grinnell sent Ward Russell and Bill Richardson, two museum employees, to Big Pine to secure the women's rescue. A week later Grinnell received a response from Alexander. The chapter also notes that Alexander and Kellogg were able to meet Norman Clyde, the most famous winter explorer in Sierra Nevada history.
