    I was hiking northbound and it was easy to see. But since it is so easy to miss in the opposite direction, I recorded a GPS waypoint for it to share with others.

    UTM NAD27 CONUS
    377498E 4061291.94 Zone11N

    UTM NAD83
    377417.85E 4061490.7 N Zone11N

    Elevation approximately 12,700

    If you are trying to find it on your way Southbound, wait until you are about 2.3 of the way down from Porester Pass to the first tarn. Each before each right-hand switchback turn, look over your left shuolder. It is on the South-facing side of a large boulder maybe 15 yards before a right-turn switchback (headed South and downhill)

    It’s here on a Google map and if you switch to satellite view and zoom in you can see the boulder it is placed on. Copy and paste the URL into your browser’s address bar.

    […] A short ways up, there’s a hearbreaking memorial for Donald Downs, a kid who died while working on the trail. You can read more about his story here and here. […]
