inuksuk

Someone had built this on the sandstone beach on Newcastle Island. We like to think of Inuksuks (Inukshuk in English) as being Canadian. The Inuit used them as navigation points, hunting ground markers, point of reference, and even food cache. Now you can find these almost anywhere there is stone and someone put one together. I've seen them everywhere from hiking trails in Banff to the Chilkoot Trail.
