    No, I'm talking about the huge rock garden you encounter if you drive off-road on the shore trail past Terra del Sol, near Post Di Noord (I guess it is several miles before you arrive at Alto Vista from the east but it's an interesting drive).

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

    Yes, that's the general area I was referring to.

    The rock stacks excluded , with the little I know about geology, those boulders are there by nature's hand- somewhat akin to Casibari and Ayo rock formations.

    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 agree, a couple wasn't so bad but not it has gotten totally out of hand and does not look so cute anymore.....

    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.
