walk with me wednesday

Occasionally, I like to walk along the road (hunting season). Sometimes I will even drive to a location and then get out and walk a ways. So, when I am out driving around to those places I have to go, I keep an eye out for places I will return to when I want to do some walking. At times, the Mr. will accompany me (not liking the idea of me walking the roadside woods by myself) I am agreeable.

He noticed them first. And had to point them out to me. I have to admit that they blend in pretty well..see them?

Now who could have done this? They are up rather high. I'm not sure how I feel about them.

At first I was entertained, humored. But the more I think of it, they disturb me...in a rather "natural graffitish" sort of way....although now when I pass them they seem to be waving at me.

And I confess to an urge to build one or two myself....

One of them is waving at me too. Goodness, how did they get up there? I'd have the urge to add smaller ones to the group. You have quite a sculptural walk! In the '80's & early '90's we'd rent a house on Block Island and when walking on beaches every summer there, we'd find little mounds of moonstones stacked together--after awhile everybody caught on and would leave their own stack on the beach for others to find. It was contagious.

Oh, they are great! They look so friendly. A nice way to say hello to walkers by. Can't help but make you smile.

Well...they are interesting, but I can see the disturbing side as well. Thanks for posting your walk today, mine was supplanted by a funeral.... a different sort of walk.

I absolutely love when I find things like that. Although I ususally prefer them to be a bit less anthropomorphic.
Great find.

Ohhhh, I love you walk. And I,too, would want to add more to the group. Or some in a different location. Just to see if whoever did those is still walking. A communication of sorts

They are sort of creepy. And I would probably drive by and look a little too long to see if they had moved. How did they get up there?

Rock stackers!! We yell that whenever we see oddly piled rocks along the trail which are so obviously put there by humans. For some reason, neat tidy piles will bother the horses - makes you wonder what they would see with that bit of....um... art?

After all the trash, spray paint graffiti, four wheeler ruts, shotgun shells, etc. that I've encountered on the trail and at trailheads, I think the rock people are delightful. I wish everyone who feels the need to leave their mark did so in such an unobtrusive manner. Take only photographs, leave only footprints.
