Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Backgroud

Big Creek is absolutely beautiful. I love the way the water rushes over the big boulders as it makes its way to the river. As we slid down the hill to get closer to the water, I noticed many rock stacks. And while I intended to take pictures of the creek, I ended up taking pictures of rock stacks, and the river ended up… in the background.

  1. This is a lovely photo. I can imagine myself sitting on one of those bolders, being still and just listening to the rushing water in the background. Bliss. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. absolutely fantastic picture Mariah…how do these stacks get there..are they done by people or nature
    The river was great too but like you I am medmerised by the stacks…need more information

    • People build the little stacks. There are rocks around and they gather the flat ones and make towers with them. We usually see an occasional stack on hiking trails, but someone was having fun with these. I think we counted 13 in all. William added one just for fun. 🙂

  3. Beautiful image! The rock stacks are outdoor shrines. Many traditions would do this including Druids, Wiccans, and Buddhists do it too. Okay to add but not to take away! They are lovely and if you look closely on you next walk you’ll probably find other man-made structures that are shrine like! Some are leaning other rocks will make you wonder how the heck??! Nice photo really!

    • Thank you for the information on the rocks. They were really neat to see and we did not disturb any. 🙂 We will have to keep our eyes open in the future for more structures.
