Geocache Description:

Peruskätkö vanhassa voimalaitosympäristössä. Lähelle kätköä pääsee autolla ympäri vuoden.

Basic cache near old power station. Available all year round also by car.

Kätkö sijaitsee Kuhankosken voimalaitoksen läheisyydessä. Koski valjastettiin sähköntuotantoa varten 1920-luvun alussa, ja laitos on toiminnassa edelleen.
Suomalaiset ovat aina käyttäneet vesiteitä matkustamiseen ja tavaroiden kuljettamiseen. Aikaisemmin tällä paikalla kohisi koski, jonka kulkijat pystyivät ohittamaan vain ns. telatietä pitkin: Poikittain asetettujen pöllien ja risujen yli vedettiin miesvoimin jopa suuria lasti- ja kirkkoveneitä. 1800-luvulla koskeen rakennettiin suluton venekanava, joka on jäänyt voimalaitoksen patoalueen alle. Nykyisin vesilläliikkujat pääsevät ohittamaan paikan 1993 avatun Keitele-Päijänne -kanavan Kuhankosken sulun kautta.

This cache is located near Kuhankoski Power Station, which was built in early 1920´s to produce electric power for Mid-Finlands industry and households. The station is in function even today.
Waterways have always had important role in transportation and travelling in Finland. When the Kuhankoski (Pike Perchs Rapids) was still running free, all boats had to pass it along a dragging route which was made of small logs and sticks. At the 1800´s a narrow lockless boat canal was made beside the rapids, but it was destroyed when the power station was built. 1993 the canal between lakes Keitele and Päijänne was opened, and today boats can use Kuhankoski lock not far from this place.
