Follow the cairns. What the heck is a cairn?

I don’t think I had even heard the word before this event.

Thanks to Mr. Wiki, a cairn is a “human-made pile of stones, often in conical form“.

Some of the many known purposes of cairns:

  • mark a burial site
  • summit of a mountain
  • mark the path across barren terrain
  • used for astronomy
  • used as lighthouse-like holder for fires to guide boats
  • represent places where livestock were lost

Also still looking for Garmin data from the run. If you would be willing to share it, please give a digital shout through my contact page. Thanks! 🙂

Be active – Feel the buzz!
