Way back waypoint markers

These small stone towers dot the Icelandic landscape, and seemingly lead off to nowhere. Yet, long before good maps or GPS, they serverd as ancient waypoint markers for Icealnders to traverse the country without getting lost – especially when the snow was covering the ground. These cairns (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cairn) have been used around the world for millenia, and I found them most striking here.
