Just built my own Cairn.
Here I am in a Cairn garden that was on a hike to Mirror Lake. Its called Mirror Lake because it reflects Half Dome in the right light.
We hiked to the foot of a 1600' waterfall called Ribbon Falls. The hike took about 3.5 hours round trip. We had to follow small rock formations called Cairn's that mark the trail.

I found out that the Merced river is VERY cold in the spring.
