Indian Rock At Skiff Hill At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

The light was so beautiful on the carvings at Indian Rock at Fort Hill the other day. It almost looks like dusk, but it was in the middle of the afternoon.

Indian Rock was a “community grinding rock, one of four such rocks found in the Nauset area. The Indians used the abrasive qualities of the fine-grained metamorphic rock to grind and polish implements made of stone and animal bones, such as stone axes or bone fishhooks.

Indian Rock was originally located in the mud of the marsh below where it now sits on Skiff Hill. The National Park Service moved the 20-ton boulder to this site in 1965.”

(I posted the 2nd photograph with my mitten on it so you can see the huge size of this rock. It was also a completely different day as you can see  by the different lighting.)

What history!
