Rock Ridge

Oswegatchie Hills, Niantic, CT

Following along the red trail, I came upon this ridge of solid rock.  It's amazing that even without any soil to speak of at this part of the trail, somehow trees have taken a foot hold in the bedrock and can survive.


  1. Those places where bedrock comes to the surface are always interesting, like seeing the bones of the earth itself.

  2. As you might have guessed from a number of my posts, there is a lot of bedrock here in the state of Connecticut. I find it fascinating, especially reading about the geologic history of some of these outcroppings. The "bones of the earth" is a very apt description.
