Another Fun Musing Out there...


"The wilderness holds answers to more questions than we yet know how to ask." N. Newhall






Here is another Summit Stone picture post saved from out there. It was mused about a ways back on some message board. Unfortunately it now seems to be deleted and was probably considered to be some kind of spam. (Please see my 'comment & caveat' of an earlier post) I recall that this Stone may have been discovered in Arches National Park, and would have been placed while out hiking and canyoneering, or could be one that was likely placed on or near Mt Edith in Banff National Park during a climb of the south peak.
After collecting, washing, polishing, 'musing about', painting, and finally placing - it is a wonder to me how I can often recall where Stones were collected and then later hidden. All part of the fun...
My impression of the 'Finders' when they post about their discovery is that they really enjoy sharing about their experience, what it might have meant to them, and have lots of fun describing their own adventure they were out on that day. It seems very unfortunate then, when their wishes are not respected in sharing, if their posts are later deleted. If this might be your Stone, or if you had some other post taken away, put whatever comment you want here about the adventure you had that day...

I FOUND A STONE put in my kayak while paddling up the coast around Tofino. Can we post a picture to your blog! I have two pictures of the stone and your muse sitting on the kayak. You can see our beach campsite too.
We enjoyed reading it around our fire and have been curious about who does this kind of thing?
Very nice gift and we have now enjoyed this too.

Yeah, its too bad that these get taken off. I found one of your Summit Stones in 2002. The original post was deleted. It seems that some persistent persons have had their posts finally left up like Jonathan at ClubTread. Used to think this what a bit wonky, but the idea has grown on me.

One of your Summit Stones was found very near Spirit Island on Maligne Lake in Jasper. It was the subject of much discussion at our coffee shop. That was three years ago.

Now people can post to this blog. It is to bad that some of those other posts are gone. I'm sure I read some but can't find them now. the first was in 2001 and i was taken by what that person wrote about what it was like to find one. Hope I see something as nice on a trail some day..............................
