Rocky road

rocksforsale

It was a little past noon, and I was meandering down a country road – a detour off the interstate because of a multiple-car wreck. I drove past Mom and Pop stores, a barbecue restaurant run out of an old camping trailer, and stopped at the occasional traffic light.

Had I been more perceptive, I could have intuited the meaning of the cairns erected at the side of the road. It wasn’t clear if only the piles were for sale, or if I could select individual stones.

I should take a road less traveled more often. I see the most intriguing things.

Perspicacious and/or Perceptive

  1. Well, this is definitely a first for me – I’ve never seen rock piles like those before! I wonder what they were for, but you’re right: the road less travelled always results in very interesting finds.

    1. I thought they looked more like works of art than boring rock piles.

  2. I love how you left the question as to what was really going on with those rocks open.

    1. It was such an odd find. The piles were so stylishly arranged.

  3. Any guesses about what the 0061 at the bottom of the signboard means?

    1. It was part of a phone number, I blurred it out.
