Mira Vista Park – Richmond
This is part of our “Drive Up To Sites” on our Huichin Tour Blog.
10 bedrock mortars and 60+ cupules on a chlorite blueschist boulder near Baxter Creek.
See Canyon Trail Petroglyphs for more details about cupule petroglyphs. Also see Cupule Petroglyphs in the Diablo Range by E. Breck Parkman in the Journal of California and Great Basin Anthropology Vol. 8, No. 2, pp. 254-55 (1986). Two major cupule rocks on branches of Baxter Creek suggest this watershed may have functioned as some sort of a ceremonial center.
Note mortars and cupules on a little bench at the base of the rock.
