Hiked up to Three Cairn (Etherington - Baril ridge) last Saturday. It was a stellar day and a great objective since we only had a half day to devote to a hike. Some photos: http://claytonditzler.zenfolio.....p898774659

Ran across an object hung in a Limber pine on the ridge and I'm curious what it is. I can't seem to attach photos but it is these three:

According to Duane Fizor, its a left-over from an orienteering event. “The cylinder marks the location and the punch is used like a stamp to identify on a card that the competitor made it to the site.” Seems an odd place to go orienteering!

I found those when I tried (and failed) to make it up Three Cairns in 2015.

Thanks for the replies. It does seem an odd place to orienteer. Interesting to see there are more of them.
