Geocache Description:

Slepnis atrodas "Gaujas kalna" jeb P8 cela mala, posma no Siguldas uz Gaujas senleju. Nemiet vera to, ka automašinu šaja cela posma novietot nedrikst, tadel atstajiet to kalna viena vai otra gala.

Cache location is "Gauja hill" or P8 road stage between Sigulda and Gauja river valley. Please note that the cars in this road section shouldn't not be parked, so leave it on the mountain top or bottom.

Iss, bet loti ipatnejs ir Gaujas senlejas posms pie Siguldas, sakot ar Nurmižu apkartni un beidzot ar Lorupes ieteku. Senleja tur ir izgrauzusies cauri dolomita pacelumam, atstajot labaja puse Turaidas paliksni. Šajos dolomita "vartos" ieleja sašaurinas lidz 1 km un sasniedz lielako dzilumu - vairak neka 85 m. Siguldas apkartne senlejas nogazes ir šauras un stavas, izrobotas ar isam sangravam, apaugušas ar biezu meža klaju, kuras sastopamas dažadu platlapju koku sugas. Nogažu piekajes vairakas vietas ir smilšakmens atsegumi ar alam: Gutmana ala un Velna ala, Vejupites ieleja Krauklu ala un Petera ala. Smilšakmens alas radušas pazemes udenu un upju, ka ari cilveka darbibas rezultata. Senleja šaja rajona ir skaidri norobežota - aiz nogažu augšmalas škautnes tulit sakas apkartnes paceltie, iekultivetie, vilnotie lidzenumi.
P.S. Slepna tuvuma esiet uzmanigi, konstrukcija ir visai bediga stavokli.

Short, but very interesting is Gauja valley part in Sigulda area. In this part valley had gnaw throw dolomite instep and in the right side you can see a Turaida support.Sigulda surrounding valley slopes are narrow and steep, indented with short side gullies, covered with a thick wood deck, which occur in various broad-leaved tree species. At the foot of slopes in several places are sandstone cliffs with caves: Gutman Cave and Devils Cave, Valley of crows Vejupites Cave and Petera Cave. Sandstone caves encountered groundwater and rivers, as well as human activities. Valley in this area is clearly demarcated - behind the top edge of the slope begins immediately surrounding the raised corrugated cultivated plains. The riverbed is twisted it consists of loose sand and gravel deposits large quantity of them are moving up the stream. Therefore Gauja depth is uneven over time and rapidly changing. River is a lot of whirpool, especially between Cesis and Sigulda. Throughout the Gauja valley is very good visible above the flood three terraces. A few meters above the floodplain overlooking the first terrace. After the nature of the sediment close to the floodplains. The second terrace above the flood valley at the top of slopes is greater than 40 m, the lower end - about 15 m above sea level. Around 4 - 5 m above this one is running the third terrace above the flood. Both of these terraces consist of dusty or fine sand from coarse sand and gravel deposits.
P.S. Be careful near the cache the construction is in poor condition.
