Gowlland Point

Gowlland Point, assuming I got the geographic names correct, is just northeast of Brooks Point. It's built from a massive reddish conglomerate and has a navigation marker on the tip. The view to the southeast includes the San Juans (the international border is only a mile or so offshore) and Mount Baker (in the clouds today).


To the north of Gowlland Point - and below the stairs at the end of the road -- is a pair of coalesced pocket beaches. The rocky ledge that divides them includes both a conglomerate with heavily weathered cobbles and some spheroidally weathered gravel beds, but what really stood out was an amazing boulder of heavily altered rock on the beach itself.
