Geocache Description:

LV Slēpnis pie liela akmens mazas upes gultnē

EN Cache near large boulder in the bed of small stream


LV „Mazas upītes vidū, kas šķir divu kaimiņu robežas, atrodas liels akmens. Viņa lieluma dēļ akmeni sauc pa lielakmeni. Par šo akmeni saglabājusies tāda teika: vecos laikos abi kaimiņi ļoti sastrīdējušies par to, kam pieder akmens. Kā viens, tā otrs gribējis akmeni saukt par savu. Un tā akmeņa dēļ radies starp kaimiņiem naids. To visu dzirdējis un redzējis Pērkons, kam šis naids ļoti nepaticis. Viņš nodomājis šo naidu izbeigt. Kādu dienu, kad abi kaimiņi gulējuši dienvidu, sacēlies negaiss, tad Pērkons lielās dusmās pārspeŗis lielo akmenu divās daļās. Tagad katram kaimiņam iznākusi sava puse. Pamodušies no spēriena, tie abi skriešus devušies uz trokšņa pusi un satikušies pie pāršķeltā akmens. Abi kaunīgi saskatījušies, tad snieguši viens otram roku, un naids viņu starpā izbeidzies. Tagad katram kaimiņam piederējusi puse no lielā akmens, bet Pērkons sevī bijis ļoti apmierināts, ka viņam izdevies savest kaimiņus atkal labās attiecībās.” (1978, 2674 A. Ancelāne, izraksts no Burtnieku skolas albuma Valmierā, 1966; sast. I. Ruberte, 1999., Valmieras novada teikas.)

EN "In the middle of the little river that divides two neighbouring lands, a large stone is situated. Due to its size it is called the Large Stone. The following tale has remained about this stone: in older times two neighbours had a quarrel about who would own the stone. Both wanted to own the stone. Thus because of the stone, hatred arose between the neighbours. Pērkons (the Thunder) heard and saw this, he did not like this hatred at all. He decided to stop it. One day when both neighbours were asleep, a storm arose, and then Pērkons struck the large stone in great anger splitting it into two parts. Thus both neighbours got their own part. Having woken up because of the thunderclap, they both rushed in the direction of the noise and met at the split stone. Both of them looked at each other ashamed, then shook hands and the hatred between them vanished. Now each of them owned half of the large stone, but Pērkons was very satisfied with himself that he succeeded to make peace between the neighbours.” (1978, 2674 A. Ancelāne, extract from an album of the Burtnieki School in Valmiera, 1966; compiled by I. Ruberte, 1999, Valmiera County Tales (Valmieras novada teikas.))

LV Mellaču akmens (pazīstams arī ar nosaukumu Melnača akmens, Mellaču Lielakmens) ir viens no dižākajiem Ziemeļvidzemes akmeņiem — pēc tilpuma 2. lielākais (Latvijā — 14.). Teikām un nostāstiem apvīts, saistīts ar Pērkona kultu, kur Pērkons risinājis savstarpēji nesaticīgu saimnieku strīdu. Akmens garums 6,3 m, platums 4,6 m, augstums 3,8 m, apkārtmērs 17,7 m, tilpums 36 m³, kopā ar atlūzušo daļu būtu 40 m³. Sašķēlies divās daļās. Caur akmens plaisu (pavasarī, rudenī) plūst strauts — Ēķinupes pieteka Maurupīte. Slapjā laikā ieteicami gumijas zābaki
.

EN The Mellači Stone (known also as the Melnacis Stone, Mellači Lielakmens (Large Stone)) is one of the most secular stones of North Vidzeme — according to its length it is the 2nd largest (in Latvia — 14th). It is wrapped up in tales and legends, associated with the cult of Pērkonis (The Thunder), where Pērkons solved disagreements between quarrelling landowners. The length of the stone is 6.3 m, width of 4.6 m, height of 3.8 m, circumference of 17.7 m, volume of 36 m³, together with the split part it would be of 40 m³. It is split into two parts. Through the stone chink (in spring, autumn) a brook flows— the Ēķinupe River tributary to the Maurupīte River. An outstanding picturesque element. Heritage of parish significance. Nearby is Burtnieki, the Burtnieki Lake, the Dambji Oak, etc.

LV Pieeja - no Irbēnu mājām pāri laukam, vai no A puses cauri mežam, ja negribas komunicēt ar Irbēnu suni. Slēpnis tur, no kurienes paveras labs skats uz akmeni un uz Irbēniem!

EN Access from Irbēni homestead across the field, or from E through woods, if you donl like to comunicate with the dog. The cache is placed where good view is moth to the stona and the homestead!
