Scree: The sound of an area inhabited by sharp, layered metamorphic or volcanic rocks that shift underfoot with clear bell tones, that  begin with footsteps and then continue, for a time, downslope: scree …. scree …. scree.

As such, scree is one of many forms of the earth that is known by human walking and bears the name of human passage.
