Geocache Description:

[LV] Multislēpnis 2 alās - alu vides izbaudīšanai
[ENG] Multicache within 2 caves - for enjoing of cave environment

[LV] Meklējot gala slēpni Tev, iespējams, uzmāksies klaustrofobiskas izjūtas. Neļaujies tam! Bridi, kad sajuties neomulīgi, necenties forsēt notikumus!
Apstajies, paguli 1 minuti bez kustībām, vērojot smilšakmens rakstus vai pelējuma plēksnītes uz alas sienam! Ieklausies klusuma! Tu sajutīsies labāk un varēsi turpināt meklējumus. Lienot visšaurākajās vietās ieteicams vienu roku turēt paralēli saviem sāniem, bet otru izstiept uz priekšu.
[ENG] During your search, may be you will feel some claustrophobic senses. Do not allow to fear yourself! When feel yourself not quite good, stand still for a while! Sleep a minute without any movements; look on sandstone layers or fungi’s near you! Listen to the silence! You will feel better and can follow the search.
[LV] Devona laikmeta tuksnešaina, plaša un lidzena seklu juru piekraste periodiski parplustošas upes nogulsneja smalkas rusganas smiltis.
Pagaja gandriz 390 miljoni gadu un smilšu graudi bija sakerušies kopa veidojot irdenu smilšakmeni.
Pari smilšakmens slaniem slideja šludoni un smilšakmens slanus caurskaloja ledaja kušanas udeni, mekledami celu ledaja malas virziena. Smilšakmeni kluva neizturigaki, tajos izveidojas plaisas, pazemes tukšumi un zemledaja izskalojumi ka kanjoni (tagadejas senlejas).
Ledaji izkusa, zemes virsmu parklaja meži, upes senlejas rami pluda uz juru un avoti palenam turpinaja drupinat smilšakmens slanus. Tie izmantoja vietas, kur šludonis bija smilšakmenus padarijis neizturigakus, un iznesot smilti veidoja nišas un alas. Šie procesi turpinas ari šodien.
Multislepna 1. posms atrodas Govs ala. Pēdējos pārdesmit gados plaša niša, ko dēvē par alu, ir pārcietusi lielas izmaiņas. Sākotnēji avots izplūda no vietas, kur redzams pazemes ezers. Bet tad, ap gadu tukstošu miju, plašs nogruvums aizbēra gar nišas DR sienu plūstošo avota strautu. Pazemes ezers kļuva lielāks, un avota ūdeņi celu uz Salacu atrada sucoties cauri aizgruvuma smiltim. Tacu nu, pedeja gada laika, avots ir atradis sev jaunu izeju un izplust no plaisas nišas ziemelu siena.
Tev jaatrod zaļa kastīte, kurā ir gala slepna koordinates.
Meklējamais priekšmets atrodas, kādus 20 m no avota, kas verd no smilšakmens sienas, pavisam sīkā aliņā, 1 metru no virszemes.
2. posms bus nedaudz grutaks.
Labai slepnošanai Tev ir nepieciešams lukturitis un pilns drebju komplekts nomainai. Siksparni un citi aizsargajami dzivnieki alas, ko apmeklesi, nav noveroti. Esi piesardzigs - bebriem un lapsam var nepatikt tas, ko Tu dari! Gala slepnis var nebut pieejams pec lieliem lietiem vai pavasara palos.

Sepna izveides merkis NAV - iedzit Tevi šaura bezizeja, bet IR - paradit Tev vietas, kas ir krašnas un iespaidigas un kuras visbiežak turisti neredz.
Saudze dabu, ari alas - Geologiskos dabas piemineklus!
Neienes alas degošus priekšmetus!
Neapkvepini alu sienas!
Neskrape iežus!
Nelien tur, kur redzi svaigu nobrukumu pazimes!
Atceries, ka Tu pats uznemies pilnu atbildibu par savu veselibu un dzivibu!

[ENG] Rivers flew along the flat and wide coastal desert lowland during Devonian time and deposited fine sand. After almost 390 mln years soft sandstones were formed from the sand. Ice age glaciers were moving over the sandstones and meltwater penetrated sandstone layers making them less resistant and eroding caves and tunnel valleys. Glaciers disappeared and earth was covered by forests. Rivers quietly were flowing to the sea and spring followed to crumb the sandstone. Niches and caves were developed where sandstones were less resistant due to glacier action. Those processes are going on till now.
The 1-st step of the multicache is situated in the Govs (Cow) cave. Wide niche, called cave underwent great changes during the last two decades. Initially the spring flew from the place where now small underground lake is. Then, close to the beginning of millennia, rockfall closed the brook that drained spring water. Underground lake arose and water began to soak through the sand of rockfall body. Just now, during the last year the spring has found new exit and flows from the sandstone fracture in the North wall of the niche.
You should find the small green plastic container that implies the coordinates of the final cache.
The container lies approx. 20 m from the spring, flowing out from the sandstone wall, in a tiny cave, 1 meter from the outside.
The 2-nd step is a bit harder.
For good caching you need the flashlight with you and the full set of clothes for change. Animals like bats or other protected species were not found within the caves of current cache. Be aware of beavers and foxes - may be they do not accept your actions! The cache can be inaccessible during tidal season or after heavy rain.
The aim of the cache is to show you rare and remote places with that own wild beauty.
Take care of the Nature formations - protected Geological monuments!
Don't swap burning things (candles, torch) into the caves!
Don't fumigate walls and ceiling of the caves!
Don't scrape the rock!
Don't penetrate where the fresh rockfall signs are visible!
Remember - you have all your own responsibility of your health and life!
