Time to wait for the Upper Arrow Lakes Ferry? Best build an inukshuk. The ferry runs between Shelter Bay and Galena Bay in Southern B.C.
Inukshuks are meant to be markers indicating a trail or to show that a person has passed that way. It’s a nice idea for modern travellers – to say “I was here” without graffiti; to show that “you’re on the right track, fellow traveller, you are not alone”.
Or they can be a test of artistic skill. Working character into stone takes a good eye.
Here’s someone with a talent for balance. Clearly an expert inukshuk creator made this piece.
They are quite a powerful sight on a bleak landscape.
