A Honey Sampler

My friend Jerry Shue, who lives in Moab, Utah, recently sent me this wonderful gift. Jerry has been a bee keeper since the late 70's and worked as a bee inspector both in Pennsylvania and now in Utah. He is Moab's bee man, helping others learn the art and science of bee keeping.

There's a story behind the darkest sample, Moab Wild Tree. Jerry got a call about a big old cottonwood that needed to come down and was known to contain a hive. Quite a project to extract the honey and get some of the hive into boxes.
