Geocache Description:

From the guidelines, as from January 2013: "People do not need to wait for permission to log your EarthCache. Requiring someone to wait is not supported by the EarthCache guidelines. People should send their logging task answers to you, then log your EarthCache. When you review their logging task answers, if there is a problem, you should contact them to resolve it. If there is no problem, then their log simply stands."

[Portuguesa]
A ilha da Madeira formou-se à cerca de 18 milhões de anos, a partir de actividades vulcânicas subaquáticas que duraram cerca de 15 milhões de anos. A última fase de actividade vulcânica iniciou-se 500.000 anos atrás, tendo durado até 6.450 anos atrás. É difícil encontrar sinais da actividade vulcânica original devido à forte e continuada erosão causada pelos ventos e pelas águas.
Esta Earthcache pretende levá-lo até uma das poucas e bem preservadas crateras vulcânicas da Madeira. Apesar de ser acessível até ao fundo durante o verão, a cratera é inundada com água no inverno. Mas mesmo nesta altura vale a pena dar um passeio na berma da cratera.

[Deutsch]
Die Entstehung der Insel Madeira aus vulkanischer Aktivität eines unterseeischen Hotspots begann vor etwa 18 Millionen Jahren und erstreckte sich über 15 Millionen Jahre. Die letzte vulkanisch aktive Phase vor etwa 500.000 Jahren endete erst vor 6.450 Jahren. Wegen der auch heute noch allgegenwärtigen und starken Erosion durch Wind und Wasser ist es schwer, auf Madeira noch ursprüngliche Vulkankrater aus der Entstehungszeit der Insel zu finden.
Dieser Earthcache führt Dich zu einem der wenigen und dazu gut erhaltenen Vulkankrater Madeiras. Im Sommer ist der Krater bis zum Grund zugänglich. In den regenreichen Jahreszeiten ist der Krater mit Wasser gefüllt, ein Spaziergang auf dem Kraterrand lohnt sich aber auch dann.

[English]
The island Madeira arised 18 million years ago out of vulcanic activites of a submarine hotspot and lasts about 15 million years. The last active volcanig phase began 500.000 years ago and ends not until 6.450 years ago. It is difficult to find original volcanic craters on the island because of strong and still lasting erosions caused by winds and water.
This Earthcache wants to lead you to one of the few and well-preserved volcanic craters of Madeira. While it is accessible until the bottom in summer, the crater is filled up with water in winter. But also then it is worth doing a stroll on the crater rim.

G: no Norte ++ im Norden ++ in the North
H: junto da rua ++ neben der Straße ++ beside the street
I: nenhuma lava quente na cratera ++ keine heiße Lava im Krater ++ no hot lava in the crater

[SOLUÇÃO ++ LÖSUNG ++ SOLUTION]
A sua solução com três cartas de resposta certas (somente: X-Y-Z) envia à minha conta do geocaching. Sugestão: seria simpático se colocasse uma foto sua com o seu GPS em frente da cratera. ++ Deine Lösung mit den richtigen drei Antwortbuchstaben (einfach nur: X-Y-Z) sende an meinen GC-Account! Optional: Stelle bitte ein Foto von Dir mit Deinem GPS und dem Krater in Deinen Logeintrag ein. ++ Your solution with right three answer letters (just: X-Y-Z) sends to my GC account! Option: It would be nice if you would upload a picture of you and your GPS in the crater.

Obrigado pela sua visita!
Danke für Deinen Besuch!
