Geocache Description:

Easy to reach area with nearby parking site.

German: Die Rote Wand am Siechenberg bei Vacha Dezimeterstarke, bankige Sandsteine wechseln mit dünnschichtigen Lagen rotbraunen Ton- und Schluffsteins. Große Stromgeflechte transportierten den Sand heran. Teilweise konnten sich flache Wasserbecken entwickeln, was sich an häufigen Rippelmarken auf Schichtflächen zeigt. Das Profil gehört in die Volpriehausen-Folge des Mittleren Buntsandsteins. Der ehemalige Steinbruch lieferte wertvollen Bau-Sandstein, u.a. zur Errichtung der benachbarten Werra-Brücke. Zum Loggen ist ein Foto des Finders mit GPS-Gerät vor der "Roten Wand" nötig, außerdem muss folgende Frage beantwortet werden (bitte nicht im Log, sondern per Mail an mich über das Profil): Vor wieviel Millionen Jahren erfolgten die Ablagerungen?

Ihr dürft nach Versenden der Mail gerne loggen - sollte etwas mit Eurer Antwort nicht in Ordnung sein, dann melde ich mich schon ...!!

English: The "Rote Wand" ("red wall") at the Siechenberg/Vacha Decimetre thick sandstones change with very thin layers of red-brown clay and silt stone. Large networks transported the sand near. The profile belongs into the "Volpriehausen-Folge" of the middle bunter. The former quarry supplied valuable building sand stone, among other things for the establishment of the neighbouring bridge. To log this cache you'll have to take a picture from yourself with a GPSr in your hand in front of the "red wall"! And you have to answer the following question (by eMail via my profile, please don't use the log for the answer ...!): How many years ago the deposit took place?

After sending the Mail to me, please feel free to log your visit - if something's wrong with your answer, I will contact you ...!
