Glacial Remnants: Erratics!!

Ever notice the occasional giant boulder in Stinchfield? They are remnants of our glacial past- glaciers carried rocks for great distances and dropped them as they receded. Some of the rocks found here at Stinchfield are most likely originally from Canada. The granite ones may be from the Canadian Shield.

Tree suspended on powerlines

As I'm sure many of you noticed there was a pine tree that blew over on Friday evening and became suspended by the powerlines near the gate. DTE was quite busy and was able to finally remove it by late this afternoon. I want to thank the people who reported the downed tree to DTE- we can always use an extra set of eyes.
