Geocache Description:

Vučjak je vrh sa pogledom u nacionalnom parku Sjeverni Velebit iznad planinarskog doma. Sa vrha se lijepo vidi većina Kvarnerskih otoka i dio cjelokupne obale oko Senja. Također je lijep pogled na okolne vrhove Velebita.

Vučjak je jedan od vrhova koji okružuju plato Zavižan na sjevernom Velebitu. Nadmorska visina mu je 1644 m. S vrha se dobro vidi većina Kvarnerskih otoka i dio cjelokupne obale oko Senja. Za lijepog vremena pogled se pruža čak do Alpi te zapadne Jadranske obale u Italiji.
Položaj Vučjaka je idealan za mjerenje smjera i brzine vjetra jer je potpuno otvoren sa svih strana. Nakon uspostave glavne meteorološke postaje Zavižan bilo je pokušaja uspostave mjerenja vjetra, no ono se nažalost moralo prekinuti jer su udari groma bili toliko česti da su ugrožavali život na meteorološkoj postaji.

Planinarski dom Zavižan je na južnoj padini vrha Vučjaka (1645 m) povrh strmih livada, s vidikom na more, zavižansku kotlinu, V. Zavižan i Hajdučke kukove. To je zidana jednokatnica s dvije blagovaonice, kuhinjom i sanitarijama. Pokraj zgrade na ograđenom prostoru stoje meteorološki instrumenti, a domari su ujedno i meteorološki motritelji (obitelj Vukušić).

Vučjak is one of the peaks which surround the Zavižan plateau on the North Velebit. Elevation of the Vučjak is 1644 m. The islands of Kvarner bay as well as part of the coast around Senj are visible from the top. On a clear day you can even see the Alps and the Italian coast.
Position of Vučjak is perfect for the measurement of Wind peed and direction because it is open on all sides. Unfortunately this proved to be too dangerous because of the frequent lightning strikes.

The Zavižan mountain lodge lies on the Southern slopes of Vučjak peak (1645 m) and overlooks steep plains, the sea, the Zavižan Valley, V. Zavižan and Hajdučki kukovi. It is a brick one-story house with two dining rooms, a kitchen and plumbing facilities. Next to the ledge there are meteorological instruments, and the caretakers are also weathermen (the Vukušić family).
