Even at dinnertime there is some recreational activity on a warm Friday at Lake Dunmore. The lake marks the eastern edge of the Champlain Valley and the base of the first ridge of the Green Mountains. A stagnant mass of glacial ice probably sat in the lake's depression as the main lobe of glacial ice retreated to the north 13,500 years ago. The torrents of sediment laden meltwater from the retreating ice built kame terraces, alluvial fans, and deltas around the dead ice, but did not fill the entire depression with gravel and boulders. Lucky for us.
Notes: Photoshop was required to repair the sails. Stitcher notes are below in a comment. This panorama was updated on September 4, 2009 using a 300mm prime lens (gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=32058)
