Geocache Description:


Klövasten

[Swe]

Om man kör från Ystad mot Glemminge ser man ute i åkern en stor och mäktig sten kluven i två delar. Denna sten kallas Klövasten och är ett minne från istiden. Men varför finns de här, hur har de kommit hit? Man undrar, man frågar. De har alla en sak gemensamt: de har kommit långväga ifrån. Isen var deras tåg. I folktron finns det olika sägner om hur den kommit dit. "En trollkäring från Bornholm tyckte sig höra klockklangen från Glemminge kyrka. Den tålde hon inte. Hon tog sitt strumpeband, band detta om en jättestor sten och slungade denna mot kyrkan i Glemminge. Men solen höll just på att stiga upp på himlen. Trollkärringen tålde inte solen och kraften i hennes arm avtog. Det blev inget bra kast. Stenen hamnade en bit från kyrkan. Strumpebandet drogs åt vid kastet, så att stenen klövs mitt itu.

För att logga cachen som funnen måste du svara på följande frågor:

1. Hur bred uppskattar du sprickans bredd genom stenen?

2. Hur tjock beräknas inlandsisen ha varit över södra Sverige som mest under den senaste istiden?

3. Vilken bergart består stenen av?

Skicka svaren på frågorna i ett email till mig.

Valfritt: Ta ett foto på dig/er och/eller GPSén Ni behöver inte vänta på att få godkännande på mail innan ni loggar, jag hör av mig om det skulle vara något problem.

If you drive from Ystad to Glemminge look out in the field there is a great and powerful rock split in two. This stone is called Klövasten and is a remnant of the Ice Age. But why are they here, how did they come here? One wonders, you ask. They all have one thing in common: they have come from far away. The ice was their trains. In folklore, there are various legends about how it got there. "A witch from Bornholm seemed to hear the bell ringing from Glemminge church. She couldn´t stand it. She took her garters, strap this on a huge stone and hurled it against the church in Glemminge. But the sun was just getting up in the sky. Troll Old Lady tolerated not the power of the sun and slowed down her arm. It was not a good throw. The stone fell away from church. The garter was to tightened in, so that the stone was split in two pieces.

To log the cache as found, you must answer the following questions:

1st How wide do you estimate the crack width through the stone?

2nd What was the calculated maximum thickness of the ice over South Sweden during the last ice age?

Send the answers for the questions in an email to me.
