How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
**This is a divecache, accessible only by trained and certified scuba divers, hence the terrain rating of 5**
Mammoth Lake is one of my favorite local dive sites. This cache has been placed there with the dive shop's permission. To get access to the lake you will need to pay the admission fee.
You're looking for an orange plastic container about the size of a small pitcher. In it are a log (bring your own pencil) and lots of room for trackables. The dive weight in the bottom of the cache is there to keep it slightly negative. Please do not take the weight from the cache. There's also a Dive Texas keychain for FTF and a "Be A Diver" trackable that wants to keep moving.
The coordinates listed are not for the cache itself, but are a close as you can get and still be dry. You can access the cache from any entry on the lake, but you'll have less of a swim from the northern ones. See the three red and white buoys? That's where you're headed. The cache is at the back of the front section, behind a door labeled "single point refueling".
Use caution when looking for the cache. If you kick up the sediment, your viz will go away pretty quickly. Please open the cache with care as well. Many of the contents as well as the lid will want to float away.
Please replace the cache exactly as you found it, making sure there is no air inside, and the cap has been screwed back on securely.
Happy hunting, and happy diving!
Congratulations to danleon2000 for FTF!!
