Geocache Description:


[LAT] Sleepnis atrodas pie Kaltenes kalvu dabas takas. Takas kopeejais garums ir ap 1,5 km. Gar taku izvietoti informatiivi stendi par putniem un augiem šajos mežos, kaa arii par pašaam kalvaam.

[ENG] The cache is hidden near the nature trail "Kaltenes kalvas" (Kaltene stone formations). The total length of the trail is ~ 1.5 km. Along the path you will find several information boards about birds and vegetation in the surrounding forrests, as well as about the stone formations (unfortunately, only in Latvian).

 

[LAT] Kaltenes kalvas – aptuveni 1,5 km attalumaa no Kaltenes juurmalas mežaa atrodas lieli akmens kraavumi, kas tiek deeveeti par kalvaam. Liidziigi veidojumi nevienaa citaa Latvijas piekrastee nav sastopami. Dabas peetnieki uzskata, ka šie valnjveidiigie akmenu kraavumi, kas veelak apauguši ar mežiem, veidojušies pirms vairaakiem tuukstošiem gadu, atkaapjoties Baltijas ledus ezeram. Tomeer vieteejiem iedziivotaajiem ir savs nostaasts. Turpat pludmalee sastaptais zvejnieks zina staastit: „Sen senos laikos vells ness’ akmens’ no Zviedrijs’ uz Talsim, lai buuveet desmito pakaln’, bet darijs’ to tik leen’, ka nav paspeejs’ pa tums’. No rit’ nodziedot vieteejam Kaltens’ gailim, tas nomet’ akmens’ kur pagadaas.” Muusdienaas Kaltenes kalvas ir valsts noziimes iipaši aizsargajaams dabas piemineklis, un 2006. gadaa tika ierikotas speciaalas dabas takas šo unikaalo veidojumu apskatei. Savulaik lielaakaa kalva – deeveeta par „Velna kalvu” – sniegusies lidz pat koku galotneem, tachu sešdesmitajos – septinjdesmitajos gados taa pilniigi izniicinaata, ieguustot škjembas celju buuvei. Muusdienaas palikusi vairs tikai sameeraa neliela kalvas apakšeejaa dalja, kuras garums ir ap 300 m, augstums 2 m. Tachu pilnibaa ir saglabaajusies Karduužu kalva, kas ir aptuveni 1 km garš, 50 m plats un 1,5 m – 2,5 m augsts, nedaudz liikumains akmenju veidojums. Pastaav viedoklis, ka kalvas senatnee bijušas sveetvietas, tapeec par taam lidz pat muusdienaam saglabaajies daudz teiku un nostaastu. (Informaacija no www.roja.lv)

[ENG] Kaltenes kalvas (Kaltene stone formations) are large ridge-like stone formations in the forest approximately 1,5 km from Kaltene seashore. Such stone formations are not found near any other parts of the Latvian seashore. Geologists believe they have formed several thousand years ago, when the Baltic ice lake retreated from this region. However, the locals have a different story to tell. The local legend says that once upon the time there had been a devil who had carried stones from Sweden to Talsi (town in Latvia on nine hills) to build the tenth hill there. But he had been so slow, that he had not managed to complete the task during the dark hours of the day. So, with the dawn, when the first cock sang in Kaltene, he threw the stones en route and fled. Today Kaltenes kalvas is a nature preserve of state significance, and in 2006 a nature trail was made to visit the place. The largest formation called Velna kalva (Devil’s ridge) had reached as high as tree-tops, but during 1960s and 1970s it was completely destroyed, as stones were taken away and crushed for road-building purposes. The remains of the former stone formation which can be seen today are around 300 m long and 2 m high. There is an opinion that in ancient times kalvas have been sacred places, and there are a number of legends and tales about them.

[ENG] The cache is a 0.9 l watertight click&lock plastic box. Contains logbook, pen, pencil, sharpener and a handful of trading items. ATTENTION! Do not disturb the moss, do not demolish anything and do not throw around any stones. To reach the cache you only need to step off the trail a couple of steps. You do not have to crawl under or jump over the trail railing. During the summer and autumn watch out for berry- and mushroom-pickers to whom your activities might look suspicious. When wet, plank-ways are very slippery. Enjoy!
