This is a tough one. Perhaps the solution is to get out there and build one!

Yes, tough one. Would the judges accept this? It is very iconic, (almost) 6000m and certainly not just a pile of rocks

If going into my closet for poles was cheating, going into your closet of photos for a summit pic is equally so.

@Trail Talk must meet with the judges on this one if it meets your objective, make it so!

What other sorts of cairns would one come across? Honestly I had to look up 'cairn' haha Turns out I know them as 'inuksuk'. But we don't have many summits here so I don't think any of mine would qualify

And @zeljkok you need to be ready with the next objective!

That summit marker is pretty cool although a cairn is usually made of rocks. Best I've seen was one made like an armchair but I don't have a picture. I'd accept this to keep the ball rolling

allright!

And just so that Candy Sack can't cheat by pulling something out of his closet , I am looking for really cool snow/ice formation. Cold front has been over western Canada for awhile so it should be recent

You should have known I'd come up with the photo of the loon. Taken at Alleyne Lake near Merritt, btw






See if any of you can post me up a picture of a grizzly bear
