Pot Holes

Rocky Neck State Park

These pot holes are formed naturally when a rock gets caught in a depression and gets moved about within by wave action, eventually wearing down the rock.  During the process, the original rock eventually wears away and a larger rock will get trapped, and the process is repeated for I would imagine thousands of years, leaving these pot holes.  As you can see they still trap rocks, and water.  I guess the process continues to this day.

  1. Interesting formations. Bet all sorts of life uses the water contained in the pot holes.
