Geocache Description:

Short Description:
By the base of a tree, between roots and covered by rocks.

Long Description:
Between Nagykovácsi and Adyliget follow the P sign. From Nagykovácsi on the left side of
the path there is a reddish puddle; a strange formation of which not much is known.
Usually some water can be found in it that really has a reddish color. After seeing this you
will see why the mountainside inherited the name: "Vöröspocsolyás hát" (red puddle
back). This place is very much liked by wild boars; this can be seen from markings of the
reddish mud on the trees.


Of the boar family there is only one type that comes from Europe (Sus scrofa scrofa). It
can also be seen in Asia and northern Africa. However, it has been taken into North and
south America. In Hungary these creatures can be found mainly east of the Danube River,
in the North-central Mountains (Északi-középhegységben), and in the Pilis mountains
(where the Hungarian kings used to hunt). The boars like to live in wet, swampy, forest
areas. However they can also be seen in coniferous forests, bushy areas, and even by
reed covered lake shores. Its resting place during the day is preferably a corn or
sunflower field and it will only go foraging from dusk until dawn. They eat almost anything
they come across, including nuts, berries, carrion, roots, tubers, refuse, insects, small
reptiles--even young deer and lambs. After rain the boars like to search for worms in
fields and pastures.


The place can be accessed by bicycle; however, this is only advised for those who like
small rocky paths.


The cache is a blue lidded plastic box of 23x8x5cm dimension. Not far from the path on the
side of puddle at the base of a large tree you will find the cache under some rocks. The
GPS reception can be week in the area, so it is advised to look at the pictures.


Enjoy!
