Nikkor 300mm f/4.5 AI-s, Nikon...
As the Laurentide glacier retreated from the Champlain Valley 13,600 years ago, the ice damned the valley and Glacial Lake Vermont rose to about 170 m (550 feet) above sea level, which is the elevation of the camera. This sand and gravel was carried by an ice-marginal river that built kame terraces until it reached the lake where it dumped fine sediments into the standing water forming a delta more than 4 km long.
This quarry is the source of material that is spread on snow-covered roads in Salisbury. It is being sorted and stockpiled this month.
