Glacier Shepard


Glacier Shepard rock cairn in honor of Shepard Glacier in Montana’s Glacier National Park is a stack of 5 river rocks harvested from Flathead Valley, MT just west of Glacier national park. This cairn displays the typical matte finish of rocks from this area in addition to a high gloss base, a bit of sparkle and a perfectly spherical stone at the top. Although Glacier’s rivers and lakes are known for the vibrant array of red, blue and yellow stones, one can also find these cool beauties. Shepard Glacier is no longer considered an active glacier but we honor its presence and majesty all the same. These small rock cairns measure approximately 2″ x 3″ x 3″ and are a perfect gift idea for nature lovers of all ages.

Rock cairns are one-of-a-kind creations divinely inspired by nature. The small rock cairns range from 3-6 inches in height and consist of at least 3 hand collected, polished and selected river rocks. Careful attention is paid to the natural fulcrum when stacking rocks. Yet because these rocks have been enhanced by polishing, their surfaces are too slick to retain stacking structure if jarred or shaken even slightly. To improve durability we use a common adhesive to maintain the integrity of the stack.

Care and Instructions
Well folks, these are rocks after all, and they have been shifting and changing for 10s of thousands of years by nature’s wondrous forces. Other than a light dusting they will certainly out-live our lifetimes. While we are experimenting with the most durable rock adhesives, it is likely the current adhesive will break down over time especially when exposed to extreme heat or cold. So bring these babies inside in the winter. If your adhesive fails take the opportunity to re-stack or re-glue in whatever configuration your heart desires. We will keep you posted on the most effective and durable adhesives as our experience broadens.

Your rock cairns are packaged with the utmost care using all natural packaging material. If your cairn arrives broken please let us know. Because these are one-of-a-kind items we cannot give you an exact replacement. We will make sure that you can return the cairn for repairs or a full refund if desired.
