Hi Carolyn Hey can you tell me the significance of the stacking of the stones? I find that this done in other places. Like the Columbia Gorge and The High Desert of Central Oregon. I really like your Photos also. I visited Arizona last year and was able to visit the Grand Canyon (briefly) and Sedona (even more briefly) but while I was there I really liked it.

Hi Michael, I'm not really sure, but I've seen rock piles on other hikes I've done that people make as cairns to show others where the trail is. Maybe they got carried away? I'm glad you like my photos! I took photography in college, and I love using those skills on my trips. This photo was from a 3-week trip from Indiana to Oregon via the SW.

Hello Carolyn Hey, I just thought I would pass this info on to you. I just found out that the stone stacking is refered to as "Stone Boys" I'm unsure why or their meaning though...

Wonderful place Carolyn and very beautiful photo. You were in Needles, Canyonlands N.P. I think. Greetings from France. Yves

Thanks for the compliments! It was in the Needles, at the end of a section of trail called The Joint Trail, which is one of my favorite trails ever.
