Stacking Stones

There must be something in the ancient human psyche that compels people to stack stones, known as cairns. Throughout the world you will find places where stones have been stacked in various formations and alters. These ones stood for quite awhile along the Ghost Town Trail.

"A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral."

-Antoine de Saint-Exupery
