Forward Harbour

There are two rocks in front of the old buildings at the east end of Forward Harbour with Petroglyphs on them.  These rock dry at a medium tide.

To make these rock carvings stand out, we sprinkle flour into the groves and lightly whisk the excess off. 

One of the former owners of the upland property made a collage of all the rock carvings at this site.  There is a lot of controversy around taking rubbings of petroglyphs.  If you do...use wet canvass, push it into the groves with your fingers and go over it lightly with a charcoal stick.  Do Not use paint or anything that will damage these artifacts.


Watch for Grizzly bears on the grass flats at the end of the bay.
