Geocache Description:


Over millions of years mountain streams such as the Rauriser Ache carved bizzarre raviens and deep gorges into Salzburg´s mountains. For centuries these were sinister, dark places terror stepped in legend.

The gorge is about 1500 metres long, the height difference amounts more than 100 metres. The gorge runs from the south after the north and is protected as a natural monument. The gorge subsoil exists of slate. The Rauriser Ache the narrowest place of the gorge, with the real "Kitzloch" flows through first, then widens the gorge and after an other narrow place into which at the side an influx than waterfall pours forth, the valley opens in the direction of rate brook, the river flows into the Salzach.

Only rarely would herdsmen stray into them in the search of missing cattle; only rarely would the be roamed hunters. They offered places of refuge to individuals on the run.

This only changed about 200 years ago, during the Age of the Enlightenment. The romantic movement, too, embraced Jean-Jacques Rousseau´s idealised landscapes with their rocks, fir threes, balck forrest, impassable steep paths and precipices with streams and waterfalls.
