Rocky Shore

Bluff Point State Park

All these boulders were left here by the glaciers which once covered this part of the country.  The glaciers would push and carry all this stuff as they flowed south.  At the southern end the glaciers would melt and recede, leaving behind everything they carried.  This process repeated itself over many thousands of years, until the last glacier receded, approximately 17,500 years ago.   Perhaps in another million years or so, this could be a nice beach.
