State County Rock Cairn

5899 Cairn Highway,
Elk Rapids, MI 49629
Description
There's a cairn of rocks outside Elk Rapids that was built in 1938 by Hugh Gray with each rock inscribed with the name of one of the counties in Michigan. It's located right on the 45th parallel as well. The pyramid stands on Cairn Highway, named apparently in reference to Hugh's pile of rocks. Cairn Highway is an obscure back road today, which says something about the transient nature of fame.
