Cairn; It's More than a Pile of Rocks

This is a Cairn.
A pile of rocks someone placed there as a landmark 
or, frankly, just for fun.

While driving through the Monterey Bay area of California, 
we saw a beach covered in rocks...
and hundreds of cairns.

We pulled over.
And made our own.

Because I think it's human nature to want to leave a mark.
To show we've been there.
A monument to our appreciation of the  
natural beauty of the area.

Have you ever made a cairn?
