- RR03 is a huge custom box with sliding lid, at about 7500 feet,
in the GPS route ROARING RIVER.
- Directions from Steve Eckert, with GPS waypoint, Aug 2003:
One box at the end of a use trail south of the Roaring River Ranger Station
and 30 yards west of Roaring River itself. Perhaps 50 yards up-canyon from
the Ranger Station there is a junction marked 'Deadman Canyon' to the right,
with a use trail to the left. Follow the use trail to a vague but large
campsite with a coffin-style metal box (the lid slides aside and you set
your food into it). This box is about a tenth of a mile southeast from the
ranger station, and there is a significant hump between it and the Deadman
- Directions from Ranger Catie at the Roaring River Ranger Station, Aug 1999:
One box about a quarter of a mile upstream from the ranger station along the
Roaring River (not on the Deadman Pass trail).
- Directions from Mineral King ranger info sheet, dated 1991:
One big box 200 yards south of Lackey Cabin on the west side of the river.
