Mawlers’ Big Adventure ’04:
Inuvik to Eagle Plains - The Pictures

Graffiti Rocks

When we stopped to look for Elephant Rock, we saw this pile of rocks on which people have written their names. Ours is in the pile, see the picture at the bottom.


Here is the main pile of rocks. The stick is actually a sighting device. If you stand on the road side (on the right side of this picture) and look toward the river, Elephant Rock will appear right over the top of the stick. In the background, you can see a second pile of rocks that is also covered in graffiti.
A little close-up on the pile of rocks itself. Our rock is the light-colored one on the bottom left of the pile. You can see a bit of photographic discontinuity, because we have not yet added our trip motto to the rock, but it is signed.
You can also see some of the other rocks featured on this page.
