poohstickz: It was a beautiful day following fresh snowfall, that gave me my first injuries of 2013 (two broken ribs when I fell on some ice onto my outstretched trekking poles), just my footprints in the snow, and time to place this cache into the archives.

Hopefully some new caches will come along and bring new adventure to this beautiful and serene place.

Geocache Description:

At 1380 feet and just off the Yellow Tower Vue Trail in Black Rock Forest, this area is guarded by a clutch of classic jonboy caches so you'll be well-rewarded for your journey.

"Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony", Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

There are several stories as to how Arthur came by Excalibur. One has it that he received the sword from the Lady of the Lake. Another, that he wrested it from a boulder. A third, and lesser known version, is that Excalibur was a prize for finding all of the Geocaches in Black Rock Forest in a single visit. The setting of this cache should address all of these versions leaving you, the visitor, to decide which is correct.

This cache is off one of the North-South trails in the vicinity of the "Shake, Rattle, and Roll" and "Spy Rock" caches. There are several ways to get here but starting at Reservoir Road and taking a loop around the forest to visit the other caches in the area would be the best way to see this lovely area.

Your quest is for a Lock n' Lock container about the same size as 30 cal ammo can. Unless equipped with the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, do take care not to antogonise the Killer Rabbit.

Please hide this cache as well as, if not better than, you find it.
