Geocache Description:

[LV]: Slepnim pieklut var ar kajam 2km pastaiga (turp-atpakal), vai ar laivu, vai peldus (ieteicams vasara). Konteiners ir pakarts strikiti un piespiests pie koka. Ludzu novietot ta pat - lai nekarajas - lai ir piespiests pie koka, ap 60cm virs zemes. [ENG]: You can reach cache by foot in 2km walk, by boat, of swimming. Please place container back so that it is firmly fixed by tree 60cm above ground, and not hanging. Rope is attached, so that container cannot be lost.

[LV]: Slepnis atrodas viena no arkartigi daudzajiem Gaujas meandriem. Meandrs ir lokveida likums upes gultne, kas rodas saniskas iegraušanas (erozijas) un uzskalošanas (akumulacijas) del. Meandri ar laiku parvietojas un veido upes likumus. Visbiežak izskalojumi no viena krasta mazliet zemak pa straumei upes otra krasta veido uzskalojumus. Tadejadi upes gultne nemitigi mainas, ja ieži, pa ko ta plust, to atlauj. Kad meandrs upes likumu padarijis parak šauru, bieži vien tas tiek palu laika parskalots un izveidojas jauna upes gultne. Veca, likumota gultne parveidojas par vecupi. Meandrejot upe nedaudz bet tomer filtre ari udeni caur uzskalotiem meandru likumiem. [ENG]: Cache is located in one of the very many river Gauja meanders. A meander in general is a bend in a sinuous watercourse. A meander is formed when the moving water in a stream erodes the outer banks and widens its valley. A stream of any volume may assume a meandering course, alternately eroding sediments from the outside of a bend and depositing them on the inside. The result is a snaking pattern as the stream meanders back and forth across its down-valley axis. When a meander gets cut off from the main stream, an oxbow lake is formed. Over time meanders migrate downstream.
