Shhh! The Bonus part II

3:17 pm - I had a lot of trouble with this cache. I doubted my approach at first, but I soon found myself within 20 feet of the cache.

At first I looked on the upside of the trail until I read the description more carefully.

Then I tried to figure out an approach down. There is poison oak everywhere, lots of rocks and lots of rocks. I decided to follow the rabidly-eroding hillside where everyone else had been. I searched there for at least a half-hour but found nothing.

Finally I decided to try some other rocks and trees, crawling through the poison oak. It was everywhere and unavoidable. Once I was in the right spot the cache was easy to spot, but it was behind more poison oak. I pulled it out, signed the log and TNLN. I wish I had brought my clippers and I hope the technu works.
