Geocache Description:

Kätkö sijaitsee Puolakkavaaran huipulla Litokairan soidensuojelualueen eteläosassa.
Cache is located on the top of the hill Puolakkavaara in the southern part of Litokaira Mire Reserve.

[FIN] Puolakkavaara on entinen saari jääkauden jälkeen syntyneessä Litorinameressä. Noilta ajoilta muistona on säilynyt noin viiden hehtaarin "rantakivikot" ja selkeästi erottuvat dyynit. Vaaran päällä on myös palovartiotornin ja -kämpän jäänteet.
Kätkön lähellä, vaaran laella on esihistoriallisena aikana rakennettu kiviladelma, jonka käyttötarkoitusta ei vielä näinäkään päivinä tunneta. Onko se kivikauden aikainen "jääkaappi", vai kenties suoja kylmää, arktista tuulta vastaan? Ehkä sen äärellä on palvottu Ahtia, Tapioa tai muita muinaisia jumalia? Kerro oma mielipiteesi logissasi.

Kätkö on 0,2 litran pakasterasia. Auton voi jättää risteykseen lähelle polun alkua.

Kiviladelma on suojeltu muinaismuistolain nojalla, eikä siihen tule kajota!

[ENG] Hill Puolakkavaara has been an island in the Litorina sea after the last ice age. The beach rocks and the dunes are still visible. There are also ruins of fire guarding tower and fire guard's hut.
There is an ancient stone structure near cache site, on the top of the hill. Has it been hunters' or fishermen's stone age "fridge", or maybe somekind shelter against cold, arctic winds? Perhaps it has been a cult place of Ahti, Tapio or some other ancient Finnish god? Please tell your opinion in your log.

Cache is 0,2 l plastic box. You can leave your car near trailhead.

The stone structure is protected by Finnish laws, so do not touch it!
