    I like the last one. That's quite the fountain.

    I'm not sure the deal with stacked rocks. I seem to find them in the most random places on hikes. I took some quick snaps with my phone last season before I got my 5n. They were about waist high.

    Stacked rocks used to be common ways to mark trails. A lot of times a stack was made and there would be a large pointy rock sticking out used as an direction indicator. Nowadays it seems people just randomly stack rocks just because. It's cool to find an area on a trail that turns into a massive orgy of rock stacks...like hundreds of them. It's very cool and kinda surreal in a way too.

    First off, thanks.

    Second. The rocks were in the past used as trail markers, before there were printed signs. On very unestablished trails they still are.

    Third. I am indeed a well "centered" person. Sorry about the lack of rule of thirds stuff.

    Decided to try and crop down very heavily and see what would happen.
