I think someone might hurt their foot if they tried to kick down many of 
the cairns between Spring Creek Pass and Wolf Creek Pass.  There are 
sections in the Weminuche where those cairns are all that stands between 
having to pull out the compass and navigate, or walk freely, more able 
to enjoy the incredible views up there.  Someone told me that it is 
considered good luck to add a stone to a cairn as you walk by, so many 
of the cairns marking the trail may be a community effort!
