A cairn is a man-made pile of stones.
They perform several functions:
mark a trail through rocky or arid, or crossing a glacier ground; identify the top of a mountain; mark a burial site or celebrate the dead; mark the presence of a cave, some of its access or internal passages.
In addition, the cairns were used to celebrate all kinds of events: a site of battles, a place where a carriage was overturned, etc..
They can range from simple to scholarly prowess rickety building clusters. In some places, games are regularly held to determine which build the most beautiful cairn. (source Wikipedia)...

Located in the middle of a river this recent cairn seems to answer the last function because it is not close to the road and go exposes you to the risk of ankle sprain undeniable!

Hi Christine

Please accept that this is my opinion only and I mean no malice or offence.
Probably a subject that will not appeal to many people, but I think this sort of photo has a rugged beauty.
Having said that, I think, as a relative novice it has a few shortcomings. I think the scene could have been composed a little better to show the subject (the cairn) a little more. I also think the image is a little pale.
I hope you don't mind but I've done a workshop.
