Geocache Description:

zalesnený skalní hrbet, 500 m n.m., dosažitelné pešky, na kole, na bežkách, na vrcholu pouze pešky

a woody rocky ridge, altitude 500m, accessible by foot, bicycle, cross-country ski, the peak by foot only

UFO to asi nebylo, ale souradnice vás zavedou na skalnatý hrbet zvaný Kozinec, kde se na podzim 1995, dle svedectví obyvatel Písecné, dotkl stráne nejspíš kulový blesk (prý velká oranžová koule). Stopa jeho pusobení je zrejmá i po 11 letech. Ve vzrostlém lesíku je zasazena již druhá generace stromku. Puvodní v kruhu zahynuly a nové stále rostou pomaleji než ostatní. Souradnice ke kruhu najdete jako prémii v tradicní keši, která je ukrytá na Kozím hrbete, což je úzký skalnatý témer 100 m vysoký hrebínek z pevnejších vrstev permských usazenin (prevažují brekcie). Má nápadné cervené zbarvení. Je soucástí Dobroucské pahorkatiny a ze hrbetu je prekrásný výhled na protejší Žampach i na podhurí Orlických hor.
Nejlépe se sem dostanete po žluté turistické znacce ze Žamberka nebo Písecné.
Pozor, v zime muže být hrbet pokrytý snehem a ledem a je kluzký.

Well, it wasn't probably a real UFO, but the coordinates bring you to a rockridge named Kozinec (Goat´s back), where a big orange ball lightning landed (according to what the residents of the village of Písecná told). A trace of its action has been evident for 11 years till now. Inside the circle in a grown wood there is already a second batch of seedlings. The first one died and the next one has been still small. As a bonus inside traditional cache you can find the coordinates of the circle, which is hidden on rock ridge of Kozinec between villages of Hejnice and Písecná. A very narrow, almost 100m high rocky ridge is made of durable layers of red Permian sediments (mainly breccias).
There is a very nice view from that place, especially to the hill of Žampach, where is a ruin of medieval castle.
You can get there by following yellow tourist path from Žamberk or Písecná.
Attention: In winter the ridge can be covered by snow and frost and be very slippery.
