One of three “Giant’s Kettles” across the road from the late Mr LaChance’s house on Riverside Drive.  This one, at ~40 cm diameter, the smallest, has a red maple growing out  of it.  It was formed when the glacial ice sheets retreated from the Great Lakes, around 10,000 years ago.

A warm front followed the wet clinging snow, returning the scenery to a more stark look.    Lots of variation in winter scenes.

  1. Hi Hi Tom, thank you for these beautiful WIntry scenes, That comforting silence that it brings – alone but not alone – a WInter Wonderland and we are but guests. xoxo

    • Thanks Krys,
      That is a good way to put it, “we are but guests.” Helps us to develop a respect and care for our surroundings.
