Inukshuks by the Athabasca River

Many visitors to Jasper National Park build Inukshuks wherever there are rocks to build them from. During a visit to the Athabasca Falls, I hiked to the base of the falls and observed the many Inukshuks that have been built there. In Inuktitut, the term Inuksuk means "to act in the capacity of a human."
