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
