Victoria’s waterfront geology, Part 1: Harling Point

Harling Point, The Harpoon Erratic, and Migmatite Bedrock

The Harling Point erratic. This is a panoramio photo on Google Earth by crobinso2010. http://www.panoramio.com/photo/56782186

Bud Hardwick of Bellingham sent us a report on geology (and the Chinese cemetery) at Harling Point on Vancouver Island, in the Victoria-Oak Bay area. Read it here. The trip features a landmark erratic, and migmatite bedrock. This is the first in a pair of articles Bud sent. The next will be to Songhees Point on the west shore of Victoria Harbor. Stay tuned, it will appear on Northwest Geology Field Trips later this week I hope.
