Geocache Description:

Tato cache vás zavede do krásného podhurí Krušných hor.

This cache will take you to a beautiful foothils of the Krusne Mountains.





Skalní brána je monumentární skalní útvar ležící kousek od tzv. Terezinina sedátka odkud je výhled smerem na Most a i na dul Armáda Mostecké uhelné. Skalní okno není v NPR Jezerka, je od nej oddeleno cestou. Predstavuje krásnou ukázku mrazového zvetrávání ruly. Leží sice již mimo území NPR Jezerka, ale jen kousek od hranice rezervace, tedy ješte v jejím ochranném pásmu. Tento jedinecný skalní útvar mel být dokonce chránen samostatne jako chránený prírodní výtvor. Orientována je ve smeru SZ - JV. Skalní útvar, v nemž brána vznikla, má dva samostatné vrcholy, pricemž ten jižnejší o neco prevyšuje vrchol severní. Z náhorní strany je skalisko vysoké zhruba jen 5 m, ovšem jeho údolní, k ceste privrácená strana dosahuje výšky 25 m.

The Rock gate is a monumental rock formation lying just close to the so-called Teresa's seat, where is a view towards the town of Most and the CSA surface coal mine. The Rock gate is not positioned in the territory of the NPR Jezerka (national natural area). It is separated from it by a path. The gate represents a beautiful example of the cryogenic weathering of gneiss. It lies just outside the NPR Jezerka area, however still in its protective zone. This unique rock formation was going to be even protected separately as a natural protected creation. It is oriented towards the NW - SE. The rock formation, whereof the gate arose, has two standalone summits, whereas the southern one is a little bit higher than the north one. The reef is approximately only 5 metres high from the upland side. Its valley, near the path side, is reaching 25 m though.
