Susquehanna River Petroglyphs, Safe Harbor, Pennsylvania

0



Join my friend Joakima and I as we set off on kayaks to explore the Native American petroglyphs on the small rocky islands in the Susquehanna River, near Safe Harbor Dam in Pennsylvania. These petroglyphs are believed to be around 800-1,000 years old and created by an Algonquian tribe.

Production and all site photography and videos are by April Lynn Downey.
