Rocks on Skylight

Since the Sixth Edition of the ADK's High Peaks Guide (published in 1957), there has been the statement, "Legend states that if a climber fails to carry a rock from timberline ... it will surely rain." From now on, however, PLEASE DON'T. The summit cairn is plenty big enough, and the summit stewards report that removing the rocks from the edges of the trail is working against their goal of keeping hikers on the trail and off the alpine vegetation. If you ever did this in the past, no need to now feel guilty, but from now on help by making sure that no one else moves any rocks. Obviously, that statement will be removed from future editions of the ADK Guide and replaced with a message similar to the one above.
Every time that wheel turns round, bound to measure just a little more ground.
