Gåskärr cavelets and boulders

During the quarantine, I've taken up trying to hike almost every day. It turns out that I can go within just a few kilometers from home and still end up in areas that I've not been to before. The forests not marketed as the hottest hiking areas, etc. And almost every time, there are some tiny rock holes that one could call "cavelets".

This was also true in Gåskärr/Tollinmäki, an area just north of the Ring III road and Bemböle. There was one cave that perhaps could even be called a cave, 3.5 meters by 1.5 meters space under a rapakivi (crumbling stone) boulder. Very interesting! The coordinates for this cave are N 60.23004 E 24.67102. A cave map is available here.

There was also another nice but little overhanging roof on a cliff. Just 2.2 meters long and 1 meters wide, but quite enclosed. And quite green, as the above picture shows! Coordinates for this cavelet are N 60.23075 E 24.67402. And a cave map is available here.
