There are many small, quiet roads in Washington
Peaceful Green Roads
Some go past big boulder on a rock wall
Or stone Inukshuk along the way
These stone figures can be found in the far north, as symbols that mean "someone was here, or you are on the right path. The word mean "in the likeness of a human" in the Inuit language, and they are used for communication and survival. They can also be used as a memorial for a loved one, or as an indication as to where fish can be found. Some have been used to indicate spirits and spiritual places.
These are among the oldest and most important objects placed by humans in the Arctic lands, and in Inuuit tradition is is forbidden to destroy Inuksuit.
This was the symbol of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada) and it served as a welcome to all that came to the Olympic games. Since the 2010 Winter Olympics many people have created their own inukshuk of stones from their property or from those gathered in the wild.
This is my inukshuk - given to me by my Grandson Ben and his familiy. It was a very snowy winter that year and inukshuk is wearing a coat made of snow.
