WORD CAIRNS

THE ENCOURAGEMENT HOPE RELIEF REMINDERS YOU NEED TO KEEP GOING

Cairns are human-made stacks of rocks that mark the trail and help hikers know they’re on the right path. In moments of fatigue and doubt, they provide relief and momentum. In moments of confidence, they provide encouragement and joy.

This newsletter does the same, but for this path of life.

*Outdoors Responsibly: While rock cairns serve a great navigational purpose on backcountry paths, they should be left for park rangers or trail creators. Hikers should not be randomly adding these markers, as it can create dangerous route confusion and also disregards Leave No Trace principles.
