Take the hike to the Falls and then drive to the cache after

About This Cartridge

This WhereIgo Will take you on a hike to Lower Yosemite Falls and ask you some questions when you get there and then take you to a geocache not far outside the park going toward Merced. It is in El Portal about 12miles away. You don't have to go there right away. After you finish just make sure you save it and restart it when you get to the park entrance. You will need the 15digit completition code for this one so make sure you write it down. so you can unlock it at the whereIgo website. The Ranger in the visitor center said they have no problems with this type of cache in the park as long as there is no physical cache inside the park. She even encouraged it. Thought it sounded fun. I hope you will too after your done. If it's windy when your here you may get wet. We did. 

Starting Location

Across the street from The Yosemite Lodge
You can find the cache page here: (visit link)

Started this one years ago but El Portal was not one of our destinations. And of course I didn't save the game along the way (dang). Headed to the Falls again on 4/24/2018, restarted the cartridge, and got as far as we could. Then specifically drove to El Portal two days later to finish it up. Took a little bit of circling to fall into some of the zones (usually typical for WIGs), but managed to make it to the end. Final hints within the cartridge all we needed to make the find. Appreciate this one since 1) it didn't crash and 2) gets people to Yosemite Falls, one of the most beautiful places in the U.S.

In town for work to host a tap takeover event in Mariposa and sell Ballast Point Brewing Company beers to the fine folks of the Yosemite Valley.

My wife Maleika came with me this weekend so we could do a little hiking today in the National Park. We felt we would let geocaching dictate what hikes those would be.

Love me a Whereigo Cache! Had to trek back up to Lower Yosemite Falls after just smiling GCJHJ4, but had a blast answering the bronze plaques this time round.

On our way back to Mariposa, we made a stop in El Portal for the final. Dropped TB7G221 for the next adventurous "fall" guy or gal... Thanks A Team Vallejo!
