Elkhorn Peak summit cairn
Now that is what you can call a big cairn. At least 8-9 feet tall (close to three meters) Mountaingazelle provided this information:
"The eight foot summit cairn was built in 1878 by Henry Gannett and Allen D. Wilson and still stands today"

Thanks Larry, I sure didn't expect this one to be POTD. Melinda has a similar (and better pic of it) posted on her Elkhorn Peak page.

to say how big it is. There is no any object to compare.
No scale.

It is over my head by two and a half feet so I'd call it about 8-9 feet high. Thanks for pointing out the scale aspect. (I never suspected that this would be chosen POTD) ; )

I should re title it to "Big summit cairn" Just plain "summit cairn" doesn't do it justice.
