Near the trail head of Lembert Dome, some hikers showed their artistic side by creating a grouping of cairns. These rock formations are ostensibly used to guide others in areas where the path may not be clear. There is some “controversy” about these unofficial guide posts primarily because they are unofficial. There have been times when not-so-funny jokesters deliberately mislead others.

A grouping like this may cause confusing since they appear in a rounded formation without a clear direction. There were others in the area that did point the way, however.
