Inukshuk on the Portage River, ©voyager, all rights reserved

This is another section of the Portage River and if you look closely you can see that someone has taken the time to build a few inukshuk on the shoal, probably while waiting for a fish to bite. The water here is very clean and these are bring home to eat fish if you can catch one.

    Beautiful clear water.

    National Heritage in the UK have been warning people not to make inukshuks on historical sites. Some people have even been taking stones from ancient (as old as neolithic) walls just so they can leave their mark.

    Like rq says, peaceful. That’s the word that comes to mind.

    A while ago I was in place where there are a lot of inukshuks, it’s a tall rock formation and people bring stones from the small beaches below and build inukshuks along the way up from the beaches to the cliffs. Suddenly I noticed two persons, looked like father and daughter, destroying all the inukshuks they passed by and throwing the rocks back at the beach. I’m not sure what motivated them, but it was a weird sight.

    We have great rocks here for inukshuk and we see them often. It’s one of those things the tourists like to do at the beach.
    People just seem to be getting more fucked up. It’s like nobody cares about anything except themselves.
    Very odd.
