Geocache Description:

Please note I have not placed the puzzle pieces in the caches as yet. I will edit this cache page to remove this message once I do. So for now, these are stand alone caches with lots of goodies. Please post better coordinates if you get them.

Lady of the Lake: King Arthur

And in the midst of the lake Arthur was ware of an arm clothed in white, that held a fair sword in that hand; Lo, said Merlin, yonder is the sword I spake of. With that they saw a damsel going upon the lake

Merlin announced that this was the Lady of the Lake. She came to Arthur and told him he could have the sword if he were to grant her a gift when she asked for it. Arthur accepted, and then a barge appeared on the water beside him. The Lady of the Lake instructed Arthur to take the barge and claim the sword.

Like Camelot itself, this cache is hidden in plain sight near a flat open area. If you come at the right time of day the sun will illuminate what you are looking for. If you look carefully, you will also find an albino redwood very nearby. My GPS was being interfered with by magical forces, consequently, I can’t say how accurate the coordinates are. If someone gets better ones, then feel free to post them.

This is your quest: to find the cache of the Once and Future King. You will have help along the way. King Arthur, Merlin, the Lady of the Lake, and Lancelot all will provide clues to unravel the mystery. Good Luck.

This reserve is open from March 1 to September 15. Dogs are permitted on leash, but are not allowed in the water. No bikes or horses. There is a $4 entrance fee (pay in the park store if entrance kiosk is empty). Maps are available at the kiosk or park store. Pay phone, drinking water, and restrooms are at the trailheads. The park store stocks a few beverages and snacky foods. There is no direct public transportation to the park. Park hours vary slightly, but generally the gate opens at 6 a.m. and closes at dusk. Please see Website for more information. Trails are poorly suited to wheelchairs. POISON OAK IS EVERYWHERE. The caches were hidden when PO was low but coming up fast. Also, though I have never seen a rattlesnake on these trails, they do appear, please be careful and report what you find. Thanks! .

Cheers,
nooks
