The Bigfoot Mint "Gift"

The actual rock stack with the mint "gift"
During a research outing in May of 2010 I stopped along the way to eat a snack and rest. My insect repellent was wearing off and I was being aggravated by  menacing mosquitoes. After I finished eating I refreshed the repellent. The wind blew some in my face and this caused me to grimace and sneeze several times. 

I recovered from the sneezing fit and walked on out the trail. Approximately an hour later I returned down the same trail on my way out. Placed on the edge of a stump beside the trail was a stack of rocks. Under the top rock was a plant limb. It was wild mint. I did some research and discovered that mint is a natural insect repellent! Did a Bigfoot watch me struggling with the mosquitoes and insect repellent and decide to help me out? Below is the video of me discovering the mint on the rock stack.

  1. Are the rock piles you find always made up of 6 stones? Did you check to see if anything took the flower and candy bar later?
