Geocache Description:

[SWE] Nils Gabriel Djurklou (1829-1904) var en av de drivande krafterna bakom sänkningen (1,9 m) av Hjälmaren i slutet av 1800-talet, då bl a den stora stenen i närheten av träbron blev mer framträdande. Några kallar tydligen stenen för ”Gubben Noak”. Var det d ä r som Noas ark (1 Mos 6-9) fick sin första landkänning?

Under sommaren 2008 fanns en skylt (se vårt foto, taget 080810) som kunde beskådas, nu får man nöja sig med pinnen som den satt på. Om någon ser en ny skylt eller andra tokerier, vore det kul att få läsa/se detta i loggarna nedan.

[ENG] Nils Gabriel Djurklou (1829-1904) was one of the persons behind the lowering of the surface (1,9 m) of the lake Hjälmaren in the late 19th century. At that time, the big stone located nearby the wooden bridge became more prominent and some people call the stone “Gubben Noak” (Old Noah, mentioned in Genesis 6-9).

During the summer of 2008, one could read a “memory sign” (see our photo, unfortunately not easily translated), written by somebody with a great sense of humour. Is that stone the place where the Ark first got in contact with solid ground again…?
