Scots Gaelic for piles of rocks, cairns can be found all over Cylburn Arboretum, in Baltimore. Originally used to mark trails, burial sites, and mountain peaks, these assemblages simply mark visitors’ passage. Their placement and location change with every visit.


Cylburn Arboretum

One of the most beautiful places to hike in Baltimore is Cylburn Arboretum. Since there is nothing in my garden blooming currently, I had to go in search of some color. Saw this beautiful delicate thing. I think its Spicebush, in the Laurel family.
