Geocache Description:


Valguma ezers

Valguma ezers ir 3 km garš un 0,2 km plats, tā dziļākā vieta ir 30 metri. Teika vēstī, ka bīskapa Alberta karietei pie ezera uzbrukuši neģēļi, visu nolaupījuši, ļaudis sagūstījuši. Izglābies vien pats bīskaps, bet zelta karieti satrakotie seši baltie zirgi ierāvuši dzelmē, kur skaidrās dienās to redzot vēl tagad. Nostāsti vēstī arī, ka Kurzemes hercogs Jēkabs bieži uzturējies ezera krastos un medījis dziļajos mežos, kur vēl tagad redzamas viņa medību pils atliekas. Savukārt hercogs Fridrihs Kazimirs te ierīkojis plašu zvēru dārzu. Ezera apkārtnē izveidoti 3 velomaršruti (16 km, 17 km un 22 km) un dabas izziņas un nūjošanas taka (3.5 km). Sportistiem un veselīga dzīvesveida piekritējiem tā ir iespēja izlocīt visu ķermeni un ieelpot priežu meža svaigo gaisu, dodoties pastaigā ar nūjām. Skolniekiem tā ir iespēja dabā ieraudzīt to, par ko tiek rakstīts dabas mācības un bioloģijas grāmatās. Te var apskatīt kritalas (koku sagāzumus), egļu astoņzobu mizgrauža pēdas, atsveķotās priedes, skujkoku meža ainavu, aizsargājamus biotopus, iežu atsegumus pie Slocenes upes, kā arī bebru darbus un nedarbus. Ja palaimēsies, tad te ir iespēja ieraudzīt arī lapsas un stirnas! Putnu vērotāji var mēģināt saskatīt zivju dzenīti, zivju gārni, paceplīti, dzeni, žubīti, zeltgalvīti, meža pīli, ūdensstrazdu vai par melno stārķi! Visbeidzot, dabas mīļotājiem tā ir iespēja atpūsties, baudot dabas ainavas daudzveidību un skaistumu.

Slēpnis atrodas netālu no Valguma ezera. Slēpnis ir neliela plastmasas kārbiņa, kas satur visu nepieciešamo. Noliec vietā tik pat labi cik tas bija līdz šim. :)

Lake Valgums

Lake Valgums is 3 km long and 0.2 km wide, and in the deepest place, it is 30 metres deep. The legend says that when the bishop Albert was driving along the lake, some robbers had attacked him, robbed him of everything, and taken people in captivity. Only bishop himself had gotten away, but the golden chariot was pulled into the lake by the six white horses, where it could be seen in clear weather even today. The legends also tell that the Kurzeme’s Duke Jacob had often spent time next to the lake and hunted in the nearby forests, where the remains of his hunting castle are still preserved. But Duke Friedrich Kazimir had created a zoo here. In the area of the lake have been created 3 bicycle routes (16 km, 17 km un 22 km) and nature learning and Nordic Walking Trail (3.5 km).

An ambush near the lake Valgums . Cache is a small plastic box that contains everything you need. Put in place as good as it was before. :)
