DCR,
Thank you for once again sharing your opinion on this art form. You said once that some people considered it grafitti, and I wondered who those people might be. I have talked to many people about it since then, and have come across only two people who object to it, you and one other. The other persons objection was that it conveyed some sort of non-christian spiritual message. It may for some rock stackers (and there are many) but not for me. It is my love and appreciation of the beauty of nature itself, and particularly of rocks, that inspires this art. People pass by rocks all the time, but do they notice nature's beauty in them? Sometimes nature makes rock stacks, and these catch the human eye. That is my goal in stacking rocks, to catch the human eye so that the beauty of the rocks will be noticed. Of course, nature does a far better job of this than I ever could; just look at some of the stacks and formations done by nature along the trail from Bowen Ranch to the springs.

Well, I don't expect to change your opinion on this, DCR. If you feel that it diminishes nature's beauty, while I feel that it just makes that beauty more noticable, then that is where we disagree. I am glad to see that in this rock-stacking criticism you have not hidden behind "some people," but admitted that the objection is your own. Feel free to unstack them if you like. Others will be stacked in their places by myself and other rock stackers.

I completely fail to see how eliminating rock stacks will lessen the negative impact on the springs, but I do appreciate your input.
