Geocache Description:

2018: Not maintained today by the cache-owner since it was placed long before the "vacation rule". So I kindly ask for ANY maintenance from fellow geocacher. Looks like it was in great shape in the fall of 2017


We have always wonder how i's possible for the water to
spring from the very top of this mountain. It sure looks so from our place (see Atomwinter cache nearby) So this day we had to go out there and seek the TRUTH!

PLACED IN 2003. After driving on bad roads for a long while we parked high up near a Norwegian Säter (there the sheeps are kept in the summertime)

Our walk out to the location was nice. It was obvious that I had gone some time without exercise :)The weather was rather nice with gusty hard wind and some light rain. We felt alive again! The view from up there was FANTASTIC. It came clear how it all worked when we saw the small lake. Sometimes the eyes lie to you.

Approach the steep wall face to look down the waterfall! and see how the water cascades down a quite long trip to the bottom of the valley.

NEWS of the road: In 2011 there is now a toll-road (Bomveg) up to the nice parking place just under the main power-lines. You can drive high up on the mountain if you want. The price is 40 (?) NOK and cards are accepted. I guess is possible to take this cache in the wintertime with just a little digging in the snow. (Is this still correct info 2018, please let me know!)
