  1. LT04 is a standard box, at about 9500 feet, in the GPS route LODGEPOLE TABLE.

  2. Directions from Steve Eckert, with GPS waypoint, July 2002:
    As the trail from Lodgepole approaches Pear Lake, about 50 yards before the trail crosses the outlet stream, you come to an informational sign showing numbered campsites and bear box locations. One box is on the other side (east) of the lake outlet, about halfway from the 2-story rock-and-mortar solar toilet and the lake. The box, and the campsites around it, are within smelling distance of the toilet. Try to use the other Pear Lake box!

  3. Directions from Mineral King ranger info sheet, dated 1991:
    Two boxes on the north side of Pear Lake.
