Geocache Description:


Trodlakjerkå



For 20000 år siden var nesten hele Norge dekket av en enorm isbre. På det meste var den 3000 meter tykk. Den enorme isen beveget seg og var så tung at den formet landskapet under seg. Da isen ble tykk nok, begynte den å sige mot havet. Alt som var løst, tok isen med seg. Isen dyttet jord, grus og stein foran seg og kunne flytte enorme steinblokker. Disse kalles flyttblokker. Trodlakjerkå er et eksempel på slike blokker som tydelig ligger i den retning isen beveget seg.Steinblokkene danner i dag et naturlig ly for vær og vind. Stedet har blitt benyttet som overnattingsplass av folk og fe opp gjennom tidene.

Parkering ved ungdomshuset. Stort sett grei sti fra motsatt side av veien, like over brua.



20,000 years ago, almost all of Norway was covered by a huge glacier. At the most it was 3000 meters thick. When the ice was thick enough, it began moving towards the sea. The enormous ice was so heavy it shaped the landscape below it. Soil, gravel, stone and even huge boulders was pushed in front of the ice masses. Trodlakjerkå is an example of such boulders clearly lying in the same direction the ice moved. The Trodlakjerkå boulder is forming a natural shelter from the weather. The place has been used as a place to sleep by people and animals throughout the years.

Parking at the marked spot. Straightforward path from the opposite side of the road, just past the bridge.
