Geocache Description:

Gå inn fra Mariholtet. Det siste stykket langs Igletjern er noe ulendt og uten sti.

Et koselig tjern som ligger i Østmarka og her har jeg tilbrakt mange timer med å fotografere insekter.
For et år siden hevet vannet seg plutselig ca. 1 meter. Alle mine fine sitteplasser ble oversvømmet.
I vinter gikk jeg tilbake til vannet og gikk oppå isen for å finne årsaken til stigningen på vannstand. Flere bevere hadde flekket tennene sine på trær som lå strødd over hele tjernet.
Jeg oppdaget et hull i fjellet ved vannkanten med netting foran og fant dette merkelig på et vann langt inn i Østmarka. Det så ut som beveren hadde demmet opp i forkant av hullet slik at vannet ikke rant ut.
På grunn av oppdemmingen kan man gå tørrskodd ned til gitteret. Da kan man se et hull i den andre enden av tunnellen ca. 50 meter inn i fjellet. Problemet er at terrenget stiger veldig opp fra vannet og tunnelen gikk rett inn i fjellet. Jeg har prøvd å finne hullet i den andre enden, men det var helt umulig.

Kan noen fortelle meg hvor dette hullet stammer fra. En spennende utflukt til et merkelig sted.

I boksen ligger loggbok, brev med hva geocaching er og en liten gave ”Calculator”.

In english:
At a nice and quite lake I have spend a lot of time taken picture of insects. A couple of years ago the water suddenly raised about 1 meter and I my favorite spotting places were flood. In wintertime I went on the ice to find the reason for flooding, and I found a beaverhut. Because of this hut a strange hole appeared in the mountain next to the lake, strange since this is a small lake far in the forest. In front of the hole there is a grating. You can see the hole in the other end of the tunnel at approximately 50 meters distance. I tried to find the opening in the other end, but the hill is stiff and high and as the tunnel going straight into the mountian, I found this a mystery.

Can anybody explain this where the hole comes from?

The geocache contains a loggbook, letter explaining about geocaching and a calculator as a gift.
