Geocache Description:

This (belated) posting may have been the last cache of the last Millenium.

For Etymology see here.

Difficulty 3. This is a 7 mile round trip on snowshoes or XC skis in the winter, 5-8 miles round trip in the summer. The road may be closed by the park service at any time without warning during the winter. Terrain is 3 to 4 depending on season. There is some minor exposure to actually access the cache.

Please be careful! I was not able to get readings in a circle around the actual cache - when you get there you will see why. Plan on a whole day and bring a lunch. Also the camera and the trusty binoculars. The rock behind (due North of) the cache is a mile away and a kilometer high. Sometimes you can see campers on it.

Placed by a Tehipite Chapter Sierra Club outing on December 31st, 2000 at 1:50 pm. Leader Dave Wallace, plus Beth, Beverly and Kathy.

Initial contents:

Special Information - Best good meal close by: Awhanee Hotel - about 3-4 miles by crow, 30+ by road. Entrance fee is $20 for the park unless you have the Golden Eagle. Downhill skiing is close by. This is a ceramic coffee canister - I think it will seal well but might be a little fragile. Would like some feedback as to the condition of the container please. It's not that big, small items only please. The sticker on top was printed by one of my clients. USGS 7.5 Quad is 37119-F6-TF-024 also DMA 2059 II NW-Series V895. GPS is Garmin GPS III.
