  1. YE04 is 10 large boxes, at about 8200 feet, in the GPS route YOSEMITE EAST.

  2. Directions from Steve Eckert, with GPS waypoint, Sep 2004:
    Ten large boxes in two groups of five (north and east ends of the parking lot) at the Snow Flat trailhead, north of Hwy 120 and 1.5 trail miles south of May Lake. This is not where the words 'Snow Flat' appear on the USGS topo map, it is at the end of an oddly shaped wilderness boundary exclusion which allows a road.

  3. YE04 coordinates: (see waypoint and interactive map links above)
