Geocache Description:


[ENG] The story goes that once the Devil became angry with locals and decided to drawn all of them by blocking up from the lake outcoming Taleja river. One night he got a really big stone and was taking it by air. But the stone seemed to be too heavy even for the Devil and he decided to rest on his way and placed the stone near the lake. He stepped with one foot on the stone and was wiping sweat. From his own weight the foot sticked in to the stone. That moment resounded cock crow and the Devil had to run away. From that time in stone there is deep footprint . In archeological literature this stone is classified as monument of old religious cult – footstone. Not far from the stone are other important ancient places – Lindenu and Boku ancient bural ground and settlement places.Nearest objects

The cache is placed on Taleja river – the coordinates will lead You to the entry in to the building. It seams that the premisies were built as guest house with sauna near Sirdskalns (Heart hill) – the 2nd highest peak in Latvia (297m above sea level). But from now on the main duty of this building will be to store this „Sirdspirts” (heart sauna) cache.

Because the devils actions can bother access to the cache, probably You will need really good balance and teamwork for getting the cache...

[LAT] Teika veesta, ka kadreiz Velns sadusmojies uz vietejiem iedzivotajiem un nodomajis tos apslicinat, aizdambejot no ezera iztekošo Talejas upiti. Kada nakti Velns dabujis milzigi lielu akmeni un nesis to pa gaisu. Velnam akmens tomer izradijies par smagu, lidz upei neaiznesis, to nolicis ezera mala un domajis atpusties. Nostajies ar vienu kaju uz akmens un slaucijis sviedrus. No Velna smaguma kaja vinam iestigusi akmeni. Šini bridi dziedajis gailis un Velns dabujis begt. No ta laika vel tagad akmeni var redzet dzilu kailas kajas nospiedumu. Arheologiskaja literatura akmens apzimets klasificets ka sena religiska kulta piemineklis – “pedakmens”. Netalu no akmens Talejas ezera krastos ir vairakas citas vesturiski nozimigas vietas – Lindenu un Boku senkapi un apmetnu vietas.Tuvakie apskates objekti

Arii slepnis atrodas uz Talejas upes, ekaa, uz kuras ieeju norada koordinates. Buve acim redzot ir celta, ka viesu nams ar pirti, Sirdskalna , (2. augstakaa Latvijas virsotne - 297m v.j.l.), pakaje, tadelj turpmak tas galvena funkcija bus glabat "Sirdspirts" slepni.

Ta ka velna izdaribas var apgrutinat piekluvi slepnim, tad iespejams, ka Jums buus nepieciešama laba lidzsvara izjuta un komandas darbs slepna aizsniegšanai...
