Geocache Description:

Take the Old Church Path, walk along the coast and you will come to a beautiful place with rocks with potholes formed by Ice Age and the sea.


Take the Old Church Path, walk along the coast and you will come to a beautiful place with rocks with potholes formed by Ice Age and the sea. There are some rocks to climb and on the path there might be ticks and vipers so watch your step and check the ticks after your hike.

The cache is on Stora Kummelskär. The rocks are Granite. The Granite has crystallised under high pressure, for example under a volcano. After that the granite went through strong transformation i.e. through a metamorphosis under high pressure and heat as the rock folded. The crystals were stretched and the layers were bent. This created the wavy shapes about 2 billion years ago. The ice river flowed here only about 12 000 years ago.
