Geocache Description:

Available in winter / Tilgjengelig også om vinteren.


A PET tube.




The cache is placed by Mærradalsbekken, 110 meters above sea-level. This creek runs through pipes a long part of its journey, in it's upper part as it sneaks through a semi-urban area, almost invisible. It is one of Oslo's seven rivers/creeks that drains into the Oslo Fjord. /
Plassert ved Mærradalsbekken, 110 moh, der den renner i en dyp, dyster dal ...

Navnet Mærradalen kommer enten av at det gikk hester her i gamle dager, eller skal vissnok være avledet av Mariadalen. Munkene i middelalderen gikk trolig gjennom dalen til sine eiendommer rundt Bogstad.
