Geocache Description:

E: This Cache is located deep in the "Bear Woods" (Mata do Urso) in the Leiria National Woods (Pinhal de Leiria)

P: Esta cache está colocada na "Mata do Urso", nos terrenos das Matas Nacionais do Pinhal de Leiria

E: This Cache is hidden in a very beatiful scenery. The Leiria Wood is a pine forest that was planted by order of the King D. Sancho II in the XIII century. The terrain is mostly sand, with some large dunes, all covered with pines. The trees are tall and straight, but near the sea, the strong winds create crawling pines with strange forms. The ground is like a carpet of pine needles and a variety of lichens.

The Cache is a large tupperware box painted green. Inside there are several little treasures, some documentation about the Woods and some trash bags for "Cache in - Trash out".

P: Esta Cache está escondida num cenário magnífico. O Pinhal de Leiria foi plantado no séc. XIII por ordem do rei D. Sancho II. O terreno é arenoso, com grandes dunas, tudo ocupado pelos pinheiros. As árvores crescem altas e direitas, mas, junto ao mar, os ventos fortes criam pinheiros rastejantes de formas fantásticas. O chão parece uma alcatifa de agulhas de pinheiro e líquens e musgos.

A cache é uma caixa de tupperware grande, pintada de verde. Dentro estão alguns pequenos tesouros para troca, alguma documentação sobre o Pinhal de Leiria e alguns sacos de lixo para recolher no caminho de volta e colocar num contentor próprio - "Cache in - Trash out"
