  1. BC03 is a standard box, at about 7300 feet, in the GPS route BUBBS CREEK.

  2. Note: The Sequoia Natural History Assoc map shows this box on the south side of Bubbs Creek, but that's not accurate - it's between the trail and Bubbs, not on the far side of Bubbs.

  3. Directions from Steve Eckert, with GPS waypoint, August 2004:
    One standard box about 50 yards east of Charlotte Creek and about 50 yards north of Bubbs Creek, just uphill from a huge fallen tree. There are two streams, Charlotte Creek is the one with the log bridge. Better campsites are west of Charlotte, but the box is to the east. A small sign just east of the creek shows the box location, and a use trail drops below the main trail to the box.

  4. Directions from Mineral King ranger info sheet, dated 1991:
    One box below the Bubbs Creek trail, east of the Charlotte Creek crossing.
