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.
