This is cache #13 in the series. Each of these caches has a different unit of U.S. currency. Total cash is $189.21. Caches 1 - 7 can be found by following links in original Borrego Backcountry Linked Caches. Only cache 1 has been found so far, but this cache is easier to find.
Each cache has a link to the next, written in several places in the cache, including twice in each cache notebook. By following the links in this series, you can find caches 13 thru 7.
It's easy to get in the wrong wash in this area, but this is a really cool place to go hiking. I recommend dropping into wash below turnout at specified location (in table below), and following main wash all the way to near cache. Then just scramble up ridge at the safest place you can find, follow ridge to near cache, and descend directly to cache. I recommend retracing your steps to get back, as the wash I came back on had a couple of difficult to descend 10' dry waterfalls.
