What You Can Do On A Trail Besides Run

A while ago my friend showed me the website It has pictures of some simply incredible stacks of rocks that this guy Michael Grab makes. Before you do anything else go check out the website. Go to the "My Work" link then "Stone Balance".

Prepare to have your mind BLOWN.

Since becoming enthralled with the website I've spent a little bit of time trying to make my own rock cairns out on the trail. Here are some I made recently.

So next time you're just not feeling it on your run........stop, grab some rocks, and get to work!


  1. Seriously? You did these? That is awesome. I want to add "Do a trail run with Cory in Southern Utah" to my bucket list.

  2. Impressive balancing there. The last one looks a little like a dog sitting perfectly and staring off into the distance.

  3. Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful!

  4. Love it! I've run past many of those and sometimes I will add a rock to the top if it is possible. I must remember to take a pic if I see one again.
