Hey, if it makes you feel warm and cuddly, go for it as long as it isn't hurtful. Make sense?

i thought i'd bump this thread back to top.
i love bully's idea.
I always think the stacks represent people's wishes and it is somewhat heartwarming. Kinda like the padlocks on bridges, an eyesore to some, but really sweet & special to others.

If we're talking about the man made small rock stacks that are found along the rough coast there is a name for them; http://www.rockcairn.com/about.php. They have taken on a life of their own and it doesn't appear they are simply for marking a path, but become something fun to do. My son carried rocks to the top of the collapsed natural bridge and created one in a crevice thinking it would be there some day when he returns.
I don't know. We made one on our first visit to the "wild side", kind of to get in the spirit of things. We wished for many more trips to Aruba, and fortunately that wish was granted. I don't agree that they are a blight, but just a bit of fun and it's not like tagging a fence or the side of a building or something. I certainly don't see the harm in stacking a few stones that are already there.
