Beautiful Glacier Rocks By The Kettle Ponds On Cape Cod.


There are so many rocks, called erratics, left by the glaciers along the shores of  the thousands of kettle ponds here on Cape Cod. Some are huge and some are really small. You can see the large size of the rocks in the 2nd and 3rd photos. (Click on blog link to see other photos.)

Have you seen many glacial rocks in your travels on Cape Cod or elsewhere?

Reflection On A Kettle Pond On Cape Cod


This was such a pretty fall ┬áreflection on one of the the thousands of “kettle ponds” here on Cape Cod. These kettle ponds were formed from the glaciers thousands of years ago.

“Scientists find kettle ponds endlessly fascinating. There is no end of books that explain how, 13,000 or 15,000 years ago, huge blocks of ice left over after the glacier retreated began melting, leaving holes known as kettles that ultimately filled with water.”

As you drive around Cape Cod you can see these ponds, large and small, dotting the landscape wherever you look. They are pretty cool.
