Standing Stones In Sedona


We're on vacation near Sedona, Arizona which has some incredible scenery.  One of the things that we've noticed as we've been hiking is that trails have stones stacked up everywhere.  It seems that a few people decided to stack stones on top of each other as a way to mark trails so they knew they were headed in the right direction when coming back, but now they are just stacked up everywhere and in all kinds of unique places.

Seeing these stones stacked up, I couldn't help but think of the instances that stones were stacked up throughout the Bible as a way of signifying the supernatural things that God has done.  Anybody that traveled by these stones would know that something significant happened in that place.

"Joshua set up the twelve stones that had been in the middle of the Jordan at the spot where the priests who carried the ark of the covenant had stood.  And they are there to this day." - Joshua 4:9

My guess is that somebody just marked their path as they were hiking and other people wanted to do it too.  But what if somebody put a marker there so that when people walked by they would wonder what happened here?
