Here's something I've never seen, a temporary cairn constructed of piled snowballs.

With lumber prices sky-high, I was surprised to see this.

Is it cheating to put some rocks on a stump and call it a cairn? This didn't seem to mark anything, so just decorative I guess.

My company throws away more off-cuts than I ever imagined. And doing it all during the current inflated prices. . . it's eye-popping! Then again, those pieces are more or less worthless, if you don't have a wood stove or a backyard campfire.

I reported this one above (this page) but it's been modified. I like to imagine somebody tinkering with it while saying "let's see if Chip notices anything different".

hmmm... it's not that difficult to rebuild the fire pit. Hardly worth wasting time writing down a nasty note :)
