Agawa Bay Pictographs

Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Pictographs

The Agawa Bay pictographs are arguably the most famous attraction in Lake Superior Provincial Park. We had already had a full afternoon of hiking on the Nokomis Trail (see previous gallery) but my family humored me and agreed to make the quick jaunt down to the lake to see them. The trail is less than a mile long and drops steeply to the lake. As much as the glyphs, the rugged coastline is as big a draw for me. The trail passes some dramatic shore here. Unfortunately, Lake Superior was in one of its moods on this day and the petroglyphs were impossible to reach, with only one being visible. Regardless, it was a wonderful little side trip...
