"ZZ" in this waypoint name means this box has been taken out of service!
Refer to the notes and directions below for details, and please contact the webmaster if the box is back.
The park is closing the Kearsarge Lakes food-storage lockers for the 2012
season in response to a noted increase in food caching at Kearsarge Lakes.
Caching of materials in wilderness is problematic to park management and
disruptive to park visitors and, as such, is prohibited.

This box was present in the described location but padlocked.
Perhaps it is only for use by horse packers?
This is the second time that I've been to Kearsarge Lakes in
the past few years and this box has been padlocked both times.
