|Artist's Comments: ||Maquinna,s village became the first important anchorage for european mariners. Yuguot became known as Friendly Cove and was visited by the British explorer Captain James Cook in 1778.
It can now be visited by boat and was one of the highlights of our trip to Gold River and area.|
