Geocache Description:

A traditional cache with a nice view to some glacial landforms
Perinteinen kätkö, jolta on mukava näköala jääkauden muokkaamiin maisemiin

The second Salpausselkä ridge is a recessional moraine that was formed at the end of the last ice age when the retreat of the glacier paused for an extended period of time causing the debris carried by the ice to accumulate at the edge of the glacier. Sometimes large blocks of ice got buried inside the debris and large potholes, called kettles were formed when the ice blocks eventually melted.

From this cache you can admire these wonderful works of nature. The cache is located on top of Aurinkovuori, which is part of the second Salpausselkä ridge and from the cache there is a great view to a kettle below. You can get to the cache along the sawdust tracks circling around Aurinkovuori. In the winter you should not tread on the skiing tracks.

Toinen Salpausselkä on jääkauden aikainen reunamuodostuma, joka syntyi kun jäätikön vetäytyminen pysähtyi pitkäksi aikaa paikoilleen ja jään kuljettama maa-aines kertyi jäätikön reunan tuntumaan. Joskus suuria jäälohkareita peittyi reunamuodostuman sisään ja lohkareiden sulaessa jäljelle jäi suuria kuoppia, joita kutsutaan nimellä suppa.

Tältä kätköltä voit ihailla näitä luonnon ihmeitä. Kätkö on Aurinkovuoren päällä, joka on osa toista Salpausselkää, ja kätköltä on mukava näkymä alhaalla olevalle supalle. Kätkölle pääsee Aurinkovuorta kiertävää pururataa pitkin. Talvisin pitää varoa astumasta laduille.
