Trail Stone Stack Tour

Bongo and a stack of stones in a dry washStacks of stones have been showing up on my trails in all shapes and sizes lately.

So I thought I’d give you a trail stone stack tour.

It might be kind of fun.

Anyway, I call the stack in this first picture a wash stack.

Because the stones are stacked in the dry wash on my trails.

That’s a pretty original name I came up with, don’t you think?

.

***

A more recent kind of stack is what I call the mini stacks.

They come in various types.

Small stone stacks on a rock

Like these mini stacks on a rock.

Bongo near a post with stones stacked on top

Or this one on a post.

Wait. I don’t see a mini stack here.

Where is it?

I think my person’s fooling me about seeing a mini stack here.

***

Now here’s the latest invention in stone stacks.

Bongo and a stone stack that blends into the background

Well, I think it’s the latest invention.

I call it the camouflaged stack.

Hmmm.

I wonder how long this has been here.

Short Stacks

Bongo and a bunch of rocksA long time ago some strange rock piles appeared where the boys used to hang out near my trails.

Those rock piles stayed in that spot for a very long time.

And more and more rock piles showed up there.

There were so many that I don’t think anybody could walk around there anymore.

I was going to check it out but my person wouldn’t let me.

She said those rock piles were taller than me and a rock might fall on my head.

I’m not sure why she was worried.

She says I have a hard head.

I think it was just her excuse to keep me away from there.

***

But today, as I walked by that spot things were different.

The rock piles had shrunk – and some had gone away completely.

Bongo sniffing the rocks

Guess I’d better check for clues.

I’ve got to know what happened around here.

***

This is bad.

This is really bad.

There are so many mixed messages around here that I’ll never sort it all out.

Bongo leaving a message on some rocks

Guess I’ll just leave one of my own.

Rock Pile Wars

Bongo looking at new rock piles on the trailThey’re at it again.

More rock piles on my trails.

Right near the part of my trail that everybody passes by.

They should leave the rock piles on the part of my trails where hardly anybody goes.

Those rock piles keep multiplying.

But here there are rock pile wars.

Somebody puts them up – somebody takes them down.

Rock piles don’t last long here.

.

But it looks like someone worked hard to make sure these rock piles stay.

That one pile has a double column of rocks.

Bongo checking out the rock piles

I’m getting a bad feeling about these rocks.

I rarely growl, but these rocks deserve one.

Just a low, quiet growl – enough to put those rocks in their place.

Bongo slinking away from the rock piles

And now I’m outta here.

Carefully, so those rock piles don’t get suspicious.

***

Guess what!

I went by that spot again the next day and the rock piles were gone.

Up again – down again.

Rock pile wars.

Too Many Piles

Bongo next to a pile of rocks in a washI don’t believe it!

Someone ran out of room in their rock pile spot and now they’re even building rock piles in my wash.

This is a silly place to build rock piles.

Don’t they know this is a wash?

As soon as we get a good rain the water will come roaring down here and take that rock pile away.

Oh, wait.

When was the last time we had rain here?

That rock pile might be safe after all.

So anyway, since that rock pile in the wash might wash away I’m going to leave it alone.

And invade the rock pile spot instead.

Bongo among many piles of rocks

Every time I walk by here there are more piles of rocks.

They’re running out of room to even put more piles.

So I think I’ll do them a little favor.

So they have a chance to do some more piling…

Bongo knocked over a few rocks

I think I’ll knock a few of these rocks to the ground.
