Are you asking about the backcountry food lockers, aka 'bear boxes', along the PCT?

If so, bear boxes 'on' the PCT in the backcountry are located at:
Rock Creek crossing, 760.5; Crabtree Meadow, 766.3; Wallace Creek ford, 770.3; Tyndall Frog Ponds, 774.0;
Tyndall Creek (2), 774.5 & 774.7; Bubbs Creek, 784.3; Upper Vidette, 786.1; Middle Vidette, 787.0;
Lower Vidette, 787.3 (0.1 West); Middle Rae Lake, 793.5; Lower Rae Lake, 794.3; Arrowhead Lake, 795.2;
Woods Creek bridge (2 locations, N & S of PCT), 799.8; Glen Aulin, 948.4…
There are also 'front country' food lockers near the PCT at Reds Meadow CG, 906.7 (0.6 North); Agnew Meadows CG,914.8 (0.3 West); and Tuolumne Meadows area, 942.5 (Hwy. 120 at campground & trailheads)...

All of the above (& others) are mapped on <http://climber.org/data/BearBoxes/map.html>...
Also, please note that the above is NOT from "Yogis guide", but from a list I made quite a few years ago - if you want
the exact information in her guide, buy it!  ;-)

Hope that answers your query.

Happy trails!!!
