Pololu Valley is one of our favorite places on the Big Island. A short hike down and it’s like you’re in another world. If you explore the valley you’ll find a swing, rope swings and hike to a bench with an amazing view! Check it out on your next adventure! . (Do you know what stacked rocks are called? Besides stacked rocks! They’re called “cairns”) A cairn is a human-made pile (or stack) of stones. Cairns have been and are used for a broad variety of purposes, from prehistoric times to the present. . . . . #bigislandturoadventures #bigisland #pololuvalley #pololu #stokedswing #pololūbench #hawaiiadventures #hawaiihikes #cairnrocks

This came in our @getcairn subscription box this month. We will bring it along for our backcountry ski adventures this weekend. I’m a big fan of subscription boxes. I was just gifted a tea of the month from @artofteala and gave @bookofthemonth as a gift. What are your favorite subscription boxes for you or your kids?#cairnrocks #subscriptionbox #teaofthemonth #bookofthemonth

I saw this interesting stack of rocks by the seaside this morning and thought, how pretty is that! I must take a picture! Once at home with a nice cup of coffee and nothing better to do, I did some googling to see if there was a name for these. I had no idea that I was going to discover how controversial these stacks of rocks, (which are called Cairns) are. Apparently in ancient times, travellers would use these to find their way, or bring attention to a particular landmark. In Scotland (where I think the name cairn originated) they were used to remember those lost. I’m sure there were other meanings and uses and I find it all very fascinating, but the fact that many of us find them beautiful and enjoy creating them ourselves is what is controversial. There are many arguments against them, and around the world, there are laws being made against them. In countries where they are used as landmarks to show the way, these are now misleading people. In deserts, beaches and bush land where rocks are often shelter or homes for small animals, rock stacking can destroy habitats. I guess I never really thought about these things before, and I’m sure many others have also not given it much thought. Now I’m not here to preach, I just thought I would share what I’ve found out so that people can make up their own minds about it. There will be people out there who love to rebel against laws and rules and won’t give a damn. Many may think twice about doing it because it’s actually culturally insensitive in some countries. Wildlife lovers will most likely not participate in this activity because of the environmental issues. Perhaps people who love to create, may make these, but then dismantle them once they have satisfied whatever urge they had to create them in the first place. I will leave this up to the reader of this little blog to decide. #cairnrocks #rockstacking #rockstackingsofig #redcliffeseaside #thoughts #reasons #cultureappropriation #culture #touristactivities #thinkaboutit #wouldyou
Cairn Blog: Discussing Outdoor Gear Sustainability Lesson: How to Rescue 2.75 Tons of Merino Wool Scraps You’ve heard the Cairn Crew extol the virtues of Merino wool as a foundation of outdoor apparel for years.

A peaceful day/moment at the beach with Bay. We created this beautiful cairn 💙🌊 Cairn /kern/ noun 1. a mound of rough stones built as a memorial or landmark, typically on a hilltop or skyline.
Great run our with @runfreefellrunner and the run free greens. Big improvement on last weeks effort! Trying to remember the mind often gives up before the body and I can do it! #runfree #runfreefellrunners #headtorchrun #llangollen #trailrunning #fellrunning #outdoorfitness #getoutthere #nurseswhorun #mondayrunday #cairnrocks

Sinus infection, no biggie!?! After being stuck in the house for the last few days, the clean crisp mountain air did a world of good for my spirit (and hopefully my body). The brewery food afterwards wasn’t bad either... 😉

The desire to explore is always strong for me so what I have learnt is to put down the map and just get lost in what this world has to offer #cave #myanmar #tunnel #photographer #photography #photooftheday #photo #igers #igdaily #wanderlust #wanderer #roamtheplanet #explore #travel #travelphotography #travelgram #travelholic #cairnrocks #holiday

I’m always finding things like this when we make the time to venture out in to nature. Today my little love note from the universe was a cairn. I’m listening... ❤️
This is my stare down face when I want to eat but it’s still too early. Mommy will break soon!! #cairnterrier #cairnrocks #cairnterriersofinstagram #cairnlove #dogsofinstagram #dogslife
