Another look at Wade's memorial cairn


Another look at the dry stone memorial built in Canada recently by John Scott of Algonquin College Heritage Masonry School.  It looks rather stately perched there on the solid rock of this exposed part of the Canadian shield. The stone structure stands as a peaceful reminder to John and many of Wade's friends and family, that he was very happy here. Stones shaped and set carefully in piles at some isolated place like this one can express the inexpressible.

  1. Thanks again for posting this John. I totally got a soaker taking this picture when the beaver dam stick I was standing on snapped. Wade probably laughed at that.
