EVOLUTION and glaciers caused the formation of the Glacial Potholes in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts.

 From the Shelburne Falls Web site:

 “The “Glacial Potholes” began to form after the last glacier age when the Deerfield River first started to flow over these rocks, about 14,000 years ago. The formation of these river-eroded features thanks to the great glacial lake, Lake Hitchcock, that filled the Connecticut Valley and also extended into the lower Deerfield Valley. While Shelburne Falls was not under Lake Hitchcock, it was under the sediments of the Deerfield River that built a delta into the lake. Lake Hitchcock drained by 14,000 years ago. The Deerfield River was then able to cut downward into its delta sediments. During this erosive process, which continues today, the river found itself on top of the gneiss bedrock and could start eroding holes in the hard gneiss.”

There is nothing like AUTUMN in New England. This is a picture of the Deerfield River that I took from the Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts.We took a ride from Worcester to visit Nancy Katz and her husband Mark. Nancy paints on silk and Mark does stained glass windows and more. It was a fun day!

Favorite Food, originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

My FAVORITE FOOD is really ice cream but this is also one of my favs. It is called a Land and Sea Dark (roast beef and crab meat on pita). It is from Elsa’s Bushel and Peck in Worcester, Massachusetts. I have one everytime we get back to Worcester. They used to use real crabmeat and now they use the fake stuff, but it is still good.
