  1. I don’t think I’ve ever stacked stones anywhere but seeing them always leaves me with a peaceful feeling, Looks like the Japanese gardens, maybe. Hope your weekend will be peaceful and meditative.

    • No Marlene, it’s the forest behind the Center! I took a friend for a walk there today and then we went and had lunch at the Loncheria up on the hill! But those stacked stones make me feel peaceful too! Have a good weekend! πŸ™‹

    I love to stack stones.
    When I was 17, on my first backpack trip in the high Sierra, we were crossing a bald-granite terrain that had only a few gnarly trees growing. It was a pristine, naked landscape. My hiking mates kept talking about the region being carved by glaciers. Sometimes we saw large rocks that had been set down in odd places by the glacier as the moving ice sheet had melted from beneath.
    For a while, even though I was a new-be, I was made the lead hiker. I enjoyed searching for our way across the face of the clean rock. I saw in the distance to the right, a stack of rocks. It seemed both haphazard and magical, a broad pyramid of balancing stones. I stopped, waiting for the few of us to gather, and I pointed it out to them. “Look at what the glacier left behind! Isn’t that just amazing. A perfectly balanced stack of stones!”
    That was when I learned about cairns. I was embarrassed. Why? For having had a fanciful idea about the power of a glacier to stack rocks, of course. That was just silly of me. But, also, I had almost missed a signpost when I was looking right at it, and one which we really needed to guide us over the pathless granite slopes. It was pretty funny for everyone though. Even me. That was my first stack of rocks.
