Geocache Description:


Elekšu bedrīšakmens ir sens kulta akmens, kura virsmā kopumā uzskaitītas 263 bedrītes. Bedrīšu skaita ziņā tas ir visapjomīgākais bedrīšakmens Latvijā. Tiek uzskatīts, ka bedrītes šajā akmenī radījuši pirms 2000 – 3000 gadiem apkārtnē dzīvojošie cilvēki, izberzējot tās ar citu akmeni. Bedrīšu radīšanas nolūks mūsdienās vairs droši nav zināms, bet ir skaidrs, ka tas bijis ļoti svarīgs, jo ir jāiegulda pamatīgs darbs tādas izveidojot.

Konteiners satur logbuku, zīmuli un zīmuļu asināmo.

Pats akmens atrodas apmēram 60 soļus uz ziemeļiem no slēpņa. Vietējais lauksaimnieks akmeni neciena un mēdz apsēt tam apkārt kukurūzu vai ko citu tikpat svarīgu, bet pavasarī, rudenī akmens labi redzams no visām pusēm.
