Rock Harbor Vistor Center picture

Post by johnhens » Tue Mar 31, 2009 8:31 am

If anyone has a picture of the entranceway to the RH vistor center, it would be a big help if you could post it.
I am looking for a picture that would show the doorway into the VC.
Thanks
John

vitz, thanks for the pictures. The flickr picture was helpful as it showed more of the doorway.

Thanks again

You have me wondering what you are up to!

I also found this picture of Windigo.

I was a bit surprised to see the Visitor center down by the water. How long has the new visitor center been up on the hill?

I hope someone else's memory is better than mine. I think the "new" vistor center has been there for at least 11 years, maybe longer.
