I was hiking around on my snow shoes, going around lake Kattilajärvi in Nuuksio. I was there for the sake of a nice walk in the winter weather, but also wanted to check out the many cliffs for possible caves. I've been here before, and saw for instance a wonderful roof cave.

Under the western side of the cliff there is a long 12 meters long shelter cave (but only 2.7. meters deep, so not very cave-like).
