Inukshuk
B.C.-based photographer presents a 24-hour timelapse photo series from the summit of Whistler Mountain. The results are simply awesome.

Up in the colder parts of the world, like the Arctic Circle, there aren't a whole lot of landmarks, no street signs or even old tree stumps to serve as landmarks or help guide travelers. So the natives long ago took to building stone landmarks or cairns called inukshuks. The 2010 Winter Olympics chose a style of inukshuk as its insignia, and built a series of them around the various Olympic venues at Whistler. One of those sits at the summit of Whistler Mountain, and recently a photographer took a 24-hour timelapse series of photos focused on the inukshuk and its surroundings. Check it out; it's nothing short of awesome.
