Leptoceratops: Hello!
I'm archiving your cache as it has been disabled for more than a one month and it is lost, completely damaged or inappropriate. Caches should be visited and maintained within 30 days after disabling.
Archiving a geocache is meant to be a permanent action. If a cache is archived by a reviewer or staff for lack of maintenance, it will not be unarchived.

If there are still leftovers from container I would appreciate if other players could collect them so that there is no trash in the nature.

Happy geocaching!

Geocache Description:

[LV] Slēpnis ir mazā PET sagatave. Lai atrastu slēpni, nekas nav jālauž, jārok vai jābaksta- sekojiet norādei.

[LV] Dižlāņu Elkas kalnā, kas, pēc nosaukuma spriežot, ir sena kulta vieta, mūsdienās ir veca kapsēta un kapličas drupas. Elkas kalns, iespējams, ir netālu esošajam, iespaidīgajam Vecpils pilskalnam atbilstošā kulta vieta. Elku kalnus uzskata par tipiskām kuršu svētvietām, ko datē ar 450.–1350. gadu. Par elku kalniem stāsta senas leģendas, ka uz tiem ir nesti un dedzināti ziedojumi. 

[ENG] In Dižlāņi Idol’s Hill, which, judging by the name, is an ancient cult site, nowadays there is an old cemetery and ruins of a chapel. The Idol’s Hill, probably, is a corresponding cult site of the nearby impressive Vecpils Hill Fort. Idols’ hills are considered to be typical sacred sites of the Curonians dating back to 450 –1350. Old tales narrate that offerings were brought to idols’ hills and burnt there.
