Geocache Description:


Vilkacu priedes - tie ir koki ar lielam gaisa saknem. Vismaz tik lielam, lai caur tam varetu izlist cilveks. Senos laikos laudis ticeja, ka apkart skraida vilkaci un vilkatas. Ticeja, ka cilveks var parversties par to, ja pilnmeness nakti nomet drebes un gluži kails tris reizes izlien cauri vilkacu priedes lielajam saknem. Kad atkal grib tikt atpakal cilveka ada, tad tapat tris reizes jalien no otras puses. bet, ja pa to laiku, kamer cilveks, parverties par vilkaci, skraida apkart, kads cits panem vina drebes, tad vairs atpakal par cilveku netikt, un nu ir viss mužs vilkati jadzivo.

Vilkacu priedes var stavet uz cetram, piecam un pat vairak kajam jeb daudzam gaisa saknem.

Ka izveidojas un kapec izaug priedes ar milzigam, teiksmainam virszemes saknem? Ka zinams, priedem ir visdzilakas saknes, tapec tas vienigas spej augt ari balta kapu smilti. Vejš var aizpust smiltis, un priede paliek it ka gaisa augoša, turas tikai uz savam dzilajam, stipraja saknem un tomer turpina augt. Ar laiku atkailinatas saknes iegust stumbram raksturigu mizas kartu. Ta izveidojas ipatnejs koks - vilkacu priede.

Visaugstakas gaisa saknes ir Mazirbes Vilkacu priedei Talsu rajona Kolkas pagasta - zem ši koka saknem var iziet, nepieliecoties - to augstums ir ap 2 metri, lidz ar to Mazirbes Vilkacu priede šadiem potencialiem vilkaciem ir ipaši erta. :)

ENG:
Wolfmen pine-trees are trees with huge open air roots. In old times people believed in wolfmen and believed that in a full moon period a human could turn into a wolfman if he takes off all his clothes and slips through the pine-tree’s large roots. If someone wanted to become again a human being then he had to slip again three times through pine – trees roots but this time from the other side. But meanwhile if somebody finds and takes the wolfman’s left clothes then there is no chance for wolfman to become a human being ever.

Wolfmen pine – trees can stand on four, five and more feet or on many open air roots.

Why do these pine-trees grow and form with unusual and large roots above the earth level? It’s known that the pine-trees have the deepest roots – that is the cause those trees are the only ones can grow in white sand dunes as well. The wind can blow away the sand or the dune can transmigrate further in that case leaving the pine-tree with naked roots. The pine-tree survives and keeps standing on own strong and deep roots. With time the naked roots gain thick and strong bark. This is the way the wolfman pine-tree forms.

The highest open air roots has Mazirbes wolfman pine-tree located in Talsu region and in Kolkas parish. The roots are over 2m height and this is a very handy process to turn into a wolfman :)
