The Glacial Erratic

Another weekend with snow and slush!  Time for another trip to the last ice age through imagination and artwork.
It is nearly sunset 17,000 years ago at what is now South Watuppa Pond.  The face of this glacier catches some of the light of the late afternoon sun, while light plays through the large calved glacier fragment to the left.  Almost hidden in this scene is a large puddingstone that has been dragged all the way from Dighton.  Many centuries later, this puddingstone will be the end stone in  the stone row of a native campsite.
