Scree walls along the Appalachian Trail (Franconia Ridge Trail) on the summit of Little Haystack Mountain in the White Mountains of New Hampshire during the last days of summer. Scree walls are built on the edge of trails to discourage hikers from going off trail. Building these small walls helps protect the fragile alpine habitat.
