Geocache Description:

King Arthur has gone to great lengths to hide his treasure from peddlers like you. It is somewhere deep in his kingdom protected high a top a throne guarded by a moat (do not attempt to cross the moat if it is out of its banks), thorns, ticks and of course some treacherous terrain. Come look for it if you dare! Your reward for finding the treasure will be your name etched in ink on the royal scroll, and a magnificent view of the royal grounds.

This cache will bring you to the South East section of White Water Canyon, this section is also known as Lost Canyon. Bridging the lines between Dubuque, Jackson and Jones counties, Whitewater Canyon Wildlife Area is one of the jewels in the Dubuque County & Jones County Conservation Board system. This 419 acre area is open for public hunting during state designated hunting seasons so please wear your orange when necessary. It is also a favorite with hikers, wildlife-watchers, and anglers dipping a line in Whitewater Creek. During periods of sufficient water, it is also floated by canoer's and kayaker's. Winter provides areas to snowshoe and cross-country ski. One of only three true canyons in the State of Iowa, the walls of Whitewater provide a lesson in the state's geology taking one back 450 million years to a time when what is now Iowa was under the sea. Rare plants and animals are also sheltered in the various natural communities found on the property so remember to take only pictures and leave only footprints.
