Session 80: Create a Cairn (Balancing Rocks)


Balance takes practice, patience, and thoughtfulness. If you rush it, you’ll fall. Balancing rocks, or creating a cairn, is a simple activity, but it will help you develop those three skills. Find a place today where rocks are plentiful. Start with a good base, then carefully start stacking one on top of the other. Go slow, breathe, think about your next move, laugh when things topple. Try again. Here are some cairns that my girls and I created while on our latest hike.
