Geocache Description:

Mohelno - step

Chranene krajinne uzemi Mohelenska hadcova step lezi na brehu reky Jihlavy a u vodni nadrze Mohelno. Je to nejznamejsi step u nas. Ma rozlohu 50,34 ha. Chranene uzemi bylo vyhlaseno 11. prosince 1952, ale uz drive byla snaha o ochranu tohoto uzemi. Jednou z mnoha osobnosti, ktere se zaslouzily o zviditelneni tohoto uzemi, byl i Karel Capek.

Na jedinecnosti tohoto uzemi se nejvedsi merou podili horninove podlozi. Je tvoreno metamorfovanou horninou hadcem (serpentinit), ktera obsahuje velke mnozstvi horciku a zpusobuje vznik trpaslicich forem rostlin – nanismu. Ke vzniku stepniho prostredi prispiva i porozita hadce – rychle odvadi vodu mimo dosah korenoveho systemu rostlin a jeho tmava barva umoznuje kumulovani tepla. Diky vsem temto vlastnostem se vytvoril unikatni ekosystem, do ktereho patri spousta rostlin i zivocichu.
Toto uzemi bylo lidmi obyvano uz ve starsi dobe kamenne. Na zacatku naucne stezeky se nachazi mohyla ( dnes jsou na ni bozi muka), kde byly archeology nalezeny pazourkove nastroje.
Mohelenskou stepi prochazi naucna stezka.

Keska je umistena pod stepi. Pri jejim odlovu si projdete cast byvaleho jarniho okruhu. Pote doporucujeme po nem pokracovat dale smerem ke stepi a dostanete se znovu na parkoviste, kde jste zacali. Cela multi meri asi 2.5 km. Hodne stesti pri odlovu.

Nezapomente, ze se nachazite v chranenem uzemi. Nechodte mimo vyznacene cesty! Stage lezi vzdy na ceste a dojdete k nim po turisticke znacce. Finalni stage lezi asi asi 15m od cesty u reky v lese v chatove oblasti. Neni nutne se k ni prodirat krovim. Cestu si prosim nezkracujte.

  Protected zone Mohelensko hadcova steppe is located on a side of the river Jihlava not far from the water reservoir Mohelno. It’s the most proverbial steppe in the Czech republic. It 's area is 50,34 ha. Many czech famous people had merit in the protection the area. For example the czech writer Karel Capek.

The area is curious thanks to its underlying rock. It is built by metamorphic rock serpentine. The rock contains a lot of magnesium. Thanks to it many herbs grow to the  dwarf forms (nanism). In this area people lived since Stone Age. A burial mound is located at the start of a nature trail.Archeologists found some flint instruments here too.

The Cache is placed under the steppe. The cache is 2.5 km long. You are in the protected zone. Walking outside of the touristic paths is strictly forbidden. Stages always lay on the path and you must visit them by following the marked trail.

Good luck and have a lot fun!
