Giant hand print from Copper harbor

U.S. Highway 41, which runs all the way to Miami, Florida, begins in Copper Harbor. The petroglyphs are near Copper Harbor, on the northern tip of Keweenaw Peninsula. The petroglyph site near Copper Harbor is west of town near the end of the local bay.

Perhaps member Bob Wheeler from Houghton (30 miles south of Copper Harbor) can tell us more about the glyphs.
