Need local Yosemite help

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Need local Yosemite help

Postby mhinch » Sat Jul 27, 2013 11:25 am

I'd appreciate a little help from the community here. I recently completed
a North Rim hike from Olmstead Point to Rockslides (great hike -- let me know
if you want the details). However, in my rush to getting back to my family vacation
that was already in progress in San Francisco, I left a small backpack ("school" sized)
in a bear locker in the valley. Several calls out there to NPS and to Curry Village
have resulted only in someone willing to fill out a lost+found report, not to actually
retrieve the backpack and do something with it.

If anyone is passing through the valley soon and could either (1) grab the backpack (which
I can exhaustively describe in terms of location and content) and drop it off at lost
and found or (2) pick it up and send it back to me, I be very grateful. I'll reimburse
any postage costs and include a shipping/handling/finders fee for #2.

Hi Minch,

Welcome to HST! Hope someone here will be able to help you out.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Supertopo.com forums are another option. Lots of Valley climbers on that site.
