Geocache Description:

[LV] Jurkalnes stavkrasts ir viena no gleznainakajam Baltijas juras piekrastem Latvija ar iespaidigu lidz 20 m augstu stavkrastu. No krasta kraujas uz pludmali ved speciali veidotas kapnes, kas jau vairakas reizes ir atjaunotas, jo specigu vetru laika krasts atkapjas par vairakiem metriem gada.

Vai tas ir liktenis vai vienkarša sagadišanas, bet lielakais alus daritajs Latvija - A/S "Aldaris" - apzinot savu geografisko atrašanas vietu, "Aldarim" 1999. gada radas lieliska ideja - paraleli iezimet gan karte, gan ari daba - vietas, kur 57°00' paralele škerso Latvijas austrumu un rietumu robežas - ar ipašam akmens zimem. Celojums sakas "Aldara" pagalma, te tika atklata pirma akmens zime ka apliecinajums tam, ka "Aldaris" patiešam atrodas uz 57°00' paraleles. Otro robežakmeni atklaja uz Latvijas austrumu robežas Latgale, Upites pagasta pie latgaliešu dzejnieka Oduma Vizula majam, bet trešo akmeni atklaja uz Latvijas rietumu robežas un 57°00' paraleles krustpunkta juras krasta, Jurkalne.

Slepnis ir small izmera kastite ar viesu gramatu, rakstamo un citiem sikumiem mainai.

[ENG] Jurkalnes Bluff is one of the most picturesque Baltic Sea coastlines in Latvia with an impressive 20 m high bluff. From the shore cliff to the beach leads specially designed stairs that have already been restored several times, as during heavy storms the coast steps back several meters per year.

Is it fate or just coincidence, but the biggest beer factory in Latvia - "Aldaris" - identifying its geographic location, "Aldaris" in 1999. year had a great idea - to parallel mark in map, as well as in nature - the point where 57 ° 00 ' parallel is crossing the Latvia border in east and west - with a special stone markers. The journey began in "Aldaris" yard, there was opened the first stone sign as proof that "Aldaris" actually is located on 57 ° 00 ' parallel. The second boundary-stone was opened on the eastern border in Latgale, Upites civil parish at latgalian poet Oduma Vizula home, but the third stone found on the western Latvia border and 57 ° 00 ' parallel intersection at sea coast Jurkalne.

Cache is small size box with logbook, pencil and things for exchange.
