Medicine Lake, Jasper National Park Alberta – Canada

A very clever person constructed these large rocks to form a Inukshuk. The small stones around the base would be fist size. Photographing this had it’s degrees of difficulty. Belly down on a slope and trying to get the horizon straight!!!

An inuksuk is a stone landmark or cairn built by humans, used by the Inuit, Inupiat, Kalaallit, Yupik, and other peoples of the Arctic region of North America. These structures are found from Alaska to Greenland. This region, above the Arctic Circle, is dominated by the tundra biome, containing areas with few natural landmarks.

The inuksuk may have been used for navigation, as a point of reference, a marker for hunting grounds, or as a food cache. The Inupiat in northern Alaska used inuksuit to assist in the herding of caribou into contained areas for slaughter Inuksuit vary in shape and size, with deep roots in the Inuit culture." from Wikipedia

    Good morning Barbara…I just had to let the joy out- I love the Inukshuks and you know it….This shot is superb- look at that dof and background…the light…look at the air we can’t see!!! All so wonderfully captured with this amazing icon that conveys such reassurance for the traveler…you’re on the right path for sure Barbara!

  • We were so happy just sitting and taking in the sun and view. You know the type of day … brings back a smile just thinking of it, and, happy to share the memory with you.
