“We “go to wilderness to remove ourselves from the human saturation in our lives, not see mementos from other people’s lives.” — Robyn Martin
Cairns, or carefully stacked stones, have been around for centuries, a practice with a purpose ranging from remembrance of the dead to spiritual offering to trail heads. Yet today’s modern day totems, given their all too prolific presence, are becoming known as a pointless form of New Age graffiti. “Let’s check our egos at the trailheads and boat launches,” Martin writes, “and leave the earth’s natural beauty alone. Her geology, as it stands, is already perfect.”
