Stone Stacks, Ellicott City


One evening we drove to Ellicott City and found we had just missed a stone stacking contest in the river.  There were hundreds of stacks and some very creative pieces of artwork!

This received recognition for creativity.

Another prize winning stone stack 


On the river bank there is a pretty garden dedicated to 'Mr Patapsco' who enjoyed this art and these are in his memory




Thanks for joining me and hope you have a great week!

  6. What a coincidence, I had a post on Ellicott City on my travel site just last week. Only my photo was about 18 years old. Did you visit there after the latest flood? Everything is looking pretty good in your photos.

  14. What a fine event to see -- even after the fact. Those stacks are impressive -- and I love what the man's memorial placque says about making them. I can understand what he means.

  19. I see them all around, especially at the ocean, but I never thought about it being a competition. These are awesome stacks!

  20. Well, that's quite a contest! I kind of hope it doesn't spread because people will wind up disturbing the natural flow... we have a way of causing problems.

  23. There is some creative stacking in your photos. The South Island i New Zealand has some rivers with very flat, large stones - perfect for stacking.

  27. There is a guy in Toronto who does this stone stacking. They will just suddenly appear one day and last until the river, and time, have toppled them. It's so cool to see!
