Love them or hate them, chances are you find cairns on your local rivers.

Plenty of anglers hate these little monuments to time spent on the bank. Some see them as a little harmless fun. Others see them as unpleasant reminders of human presence. More and more they are coming to be seen as an ecological hazard.

Wherever you land in this discussion, this article from the site Wide Open Spaces is a great read. It digs into the impact of rock stacking on rivers and the ecosystem there in. It’s worth a read and a share.

  1. If I want to see monuments from other people’s lives, I go to museums. I go to the wilderness to remove myself from the human saturation of my life.

    Rock stacking is an unthinking man’s environmental blunder.
