Geocache Description:

LV Slēpnis skaistā vietā uzkalnā pie ezera

EN cache in picturesque place near the lake

LV Kāpurkalna ezera abos krastos atradušies Māras akmeņi, kur ļaudis nākuši ziedojumus nolikt. Pēcāk, ierīkojot zivju dīķus, ezera līmenis pacelts, un īstie akmeņi palikuši zem ūdens līmeņa. Pašreizējie akmeņi kalma galā esot novietoti vēlāk. Slēpņa autors atceras skolas laikā meklējis akmeņus kalna galā, tie bija ieauguši krūmos

EN On the both shores of the Kāpurkalns lake two sacred stones have been standing. In old times those have been frequented bo local folks bringing donations and seeking healing powers of the water. When the lever of the lake has been risen to form a fishing farm, the original stones have been submerged. The current stones on the top of the hill are said to be erected later.

LV Interesanta detaļa - pa ezeru peld salas - ezera aizaugušās malas, kas noplīsušas un aizpeldējušas kad līmenis pacelts

EN An odd detail - there are floating islands in the lake, formed from the detached overgrowth what got floating when the lake level was rising.

LV Pieejamība slēpnim - pāri laukam pie zīmes Privātīpašums

EN Availability - across the field from the Private sign
