Beer can in a split wedged rock

This was up in New Hampshire somewhere, where I was poking around over the weekend. It may mean nothing, or else be a clue to the wedging of split rocks, a beer can (empty) wedged in a split rock:
Is there any significance to the quartz?If you are simply littering, wouldn't it be easier to just toss the beer can on the ground?

I'm glad you brought this up because I found a can of beer on a rock pile in 2010. It was near a dirt road (access road to state land), so I could see where someone might have been partying there and accidentally left a beer behind. But the fact that it was full/sealed and where it was set on the pile bothered me. Do I remove it because it's trash, or leave it there because someone put it *there*? It was not placed when the rock pile was built, because it was on top of leaves that covered the rock pile.

One other thing, this is near what I would call "a significant site" (lots of cairns) but not in the site. It was along the edge of the site in one of the messier rock piles that didn't photograph well.
