    The word cairn is derived from the Scottish Gaelic meaning stone man. It may conjure images of faith, purpose and an experience of spirituality. In the backcountry, cairn building is a popular pastime, and it’s easy to understand why people feel attracted to these adorable piles of flat rocks that are balanced as child’s building blocks.
