Thank you Liz and Tammy for viewing and commenting....I have now found four beautiful places where hikers have left their marks in little sculptures....I know that there millions of cairns out there...but sometimes the places they are set up are just so beautiful....have a great day! =^..^= #9742225

It's great! What fun, and the balance and "architecture" are amazing. #9742229

Amazing find of this creative artwork Patricia. Some people have just too much time on their hands! Nicely composed showing both the precarious piles and the raw material. #9774552

You'll have to do this hike too, Dee...Grand Wash is wonderful..even if I only did half...I met my husband at the other end with the vehicle....and that is where I found the riverwash with the wildflowers and lovely view of the wall...had I hiked all the way with him I would have not gone down that road...I love serendipity! =^..^= #9776216
