Piles of rock left by previous hikers to guide future hikers. These things represent to me what is good about people. To be on a trail and recognize that you have had difficulty finding the way to go, and to stop and take the time to make a marker to tell those that will come after you the right way to go. To act in a way that will help others that you will never meet, in a way that you will never witness, to perform a kindness for which you will never be thanked. That people do that for each other makes my heart glad.
