Cairns

Step 1  – remove a zillion samplings that amazingly can get to over 30 feet high. Step 2 – clean off the large rocks you find. Step 3 – build some cairns. These are a continuing work in process. It’s kinda ancient graffiti. It shows man has been there without permanently destroying anything. Step 4 – enjoy the view.

Cairn – A cairn is a human-made pile of stones. The word cairn comes from the Scottish Gaelic: càrn. Cairns have been and are used for a broad variety of purposes, from prehistoric times to the present.

    Reminds me of MANY years ago when on the farm our only flat meadow was on top of the hill. Our whole family would spend the days doing the haying and come back down to the farm in time to milk. Took our lunch & as little ones we played on the ledges, made stoves, chairs, beds, tables & any others to make our home. Many wonderful memories in good ole Delaware Co. God Bless you Karen & your wonderful talent.
