Tag with chain hanging on a trail cairnWhat’s this?

There’s some kind of label on my trail cairn.

It’s never been here before.

I wonder what it’s supposed to do.

Maybe each trail cairn is going to get its own special tag.

Then when someone gives directions on my trails they don’t have to say, “Follow the cairns to the end of the trail.”

They could say, “Go past the red tagged cairn and turn left at the blue tagged cairn.”

That would make it so much easier to give directions.

Unless you forgot which tags were on which cairns.


If you told someone the wrong thing they might get really lost. They might end up at the trail that ends in a big hole instead of at the trail where they could climb a mountain like they really wanted to do.

Whoever put that tag on there needs to come up with something better.

But how am I going to tell them? I don’t even know who put that tag there.

Maybe if I sniff around I can find some clues.

Bongo sniffing trail cairn

I don’t know.

There’s been so many messages left here (including some of my old ones) that I don’t know if I’ll ever sort it all out.

Wait. What’s this?

This tag has another side.

Necklace on tag on cairn

The other side is a necklace.

And it says, “PASS IT ON!”

I’ve got it now.

This tag wasn’t left here to label the cairn – this necklace was left here for me.

So I could pass it on to the next one of my girlfriends that I see.

I wonder who my lucky girlfriend will be.

      Sue Ann, no trouble at all – unless two of my girlfriends show up at the same time.

    I think you’ve got it Bongo. Or, it’s like a license for rocks – everybody’s got to have ID nowadays you know.

      Lola, you might be right. In that case I bet those tags will show up on the bushes and trees soon too.

    Why are the rocks in jail?

      Lily, those rocks are in jail so they can’t escape like those alien rocks did. Actually it’s a trail cairn – those rocks mark where the trail is so people don’t wander off the wrong way.

    Maybe it’s an award for winning best in class for some kind of rock contest?

      Karen, I bet you’re right. It did have a blue ribbon. That’s too bad because I bet those rocks won’t let me have that necklace then to give to my girlfriend.

    What a fab idea! Do you have to leave something in it’s place?

    • Bongo

      January 17, 2014 at 10:58 am

      Dalton, I guess I could leave a message there.

    That is a beautiful necklace Bongo! I love the message, “Smile”! which is one of my most favorite words! You’re lucky to have found it! 🙂

      Kevin, it’s not every day that you find a necklace on a tag just hanging around on a trail.
