Geocache Description:

LV: konteiners satur zīmuli un logboku.

ENG: The cache contains a pencil and a logbook.       


LV: Slēpnis atrodas bērzu birzītē pie dobumakmens. Līdz objektam var aizbraukt pa sliktu lauku ceļu, kas nepilnu 100 m attālumā ved gar birzītēm. Abas birzītes labi ieraugāmas arī no Tūjas–Limbažu šosejas, tomēr no šīs puses pieeju traucē dziļš grāvis. Pie akmeņiem ir lieliska atmosfēra ,un iespēja novērot ,no attāluma, stirnas un citas meža radības. Vairāk informācija atsaucēs.

 

"Dobumakmeni 2001. gadā, akmeņu kaudzē meklējot dižakmeņus, uzgāja novadpētniece D. Čakste. Akmens caurmērs ir 1,26 m, dobuma caurmērs 0,38 m, augstums ap 0,4 m, apkārtmērs 4,07 m. Akmens apakšējā daļa neapstrādāta, bet augšējā daļa ar kanelūrveida vertikālu cirtumu palīdzību izveidota nosacīti cilindrveidīga. Šādi cilindrveida akmeņi ar cilindrveida dobumu īpaši raksturīgi Kurzemes R un DR daļai; Vidzemē līdz šim šāda veida akmeņi nebija zināmi. Akmens atrodams meliorētu laiku vidū vienā no 2 birzītēm nepilnu kilometru uz DR no Tūjas skolas, taču birzītes apkārtējā līdzenumā labi izceļas un ir ieraugāmas no Tūjas – Limbažu ceļa. Pēc vietējo iedzīvotāju stāstītā, akmenim, kas senatnē varētu būt izmantots sakrāli rituālām darbībām, piemīt interesanta īpašība: sauss būdams, akmens izskatās vienlaidus pelēks, bet, kad dobumā sakrājas tīrs lietus ūdens, akmens maina krāsu uz sarkanu, taču nevienam vēl nav laimējies to nofotografēt."

 

ENG: The cache is located in a birch grove by the hollow stone. It is possible to drive to the location by a country road in bad condition, passing by the groves in the distance of about 100 m. Both groves are well seen from the nearby Tūja – Limbaži highway, but access from this side is hindered by a deep ditch. The feelling by the hollow stone is fantastic and you can see doe and other wild life. More information in the refrences below.

 

The hollow stone was found in a pile of stones by a local researcher D. Čakste in 2001 when searching for great stones. The diameter of the stone is 1.26 m, the diameter of the cavity is 0.38 m, height - about 0.4 m, circumference - 4.07 m. The lower part of the stone is crude, but the upper part by means of vertical cannelure type chopping has been made relatively cylindrical. Such cylindrical stones with cylindrical type of cavities are especially typical for the W and SW parts of Kurzeme; in Vidzemē till now such types of stones have not been known. The stone used to be oriented against two small groves situated in the wide drainaged fields about a kilometer in SW direction of the Tūja School; there is no other closer landmark. The groves are well featured against the nearby lowland; it is possible to drive to them by a country road in bad condition, passing by the groves in the distance of about 100 m. Both groves are well seen from the nearby Tūja – Limbaži highway, but access from this side is hindered by a deep ditch. According to the above mentioned information, the cup marked stone was located between both groves, in a pile of stones collected from the field, although in the not so far past, by pushing or dragging it by a tractor, it had been moved to the W side grove and placed there on purpose. There are 12 smaller stones places around the stone in a concentric circle. There are also oaks and fir trees planted around the stone, thus possibly substantially hindering perception of the stone in the future, but currently, the trees are quite stunted.
