Geocache Description:

Lostenen

[Swe:] Lostenen i Överpurmo (ca 30 km SO från Bennäs) är en av Finlands största flyttblock, 27 m hög! Namnet kommer av att stenen tidigare användes som utsiktsplats vid lojakt. På 1910-talet sköts den senaste lon vid stenen. Enligt sägen kunde man förr se 7 kyrktorn från det mäktiga flyttblocket. Lostenen är en sevärdhet för turister!

[Eng:] Lostenen in Överpurmo (ab. 30 km SE from Pännäinen) (in finnish: Ilveskivi, in english: Lynxstone), is one of the largest erratic boulder in Finland, 27 m high! The name comes from that the stone was used as an outlook tower when hunting Lynx cats. About year 1910 the last Lynx was shot. People have said that many years ago you could see 7 churchtowers from this great stone. Lostenen is worth seeing for tourists!
