Glacial Grooves

I've mentioned before that the beaches on the western side of Victoria tend to be rocky rather than sandy. There are also many little rock islets just offshore. Many of them, such as this one, are grooved and rounded due to glacial grinding during the last ice age.

And thanks to all that glacier activity in our area, I can't do anything with my yard thanks to all the glacial till in the dirt. It's a real pain to dig in! lol

One of these days I'd like to check out Eastern Washington to see the Channeled Scablands & dry falls, which were created when glacial Lake Missoula melted and washed over western Montana, the Idaho panhandle and into Eastern WA.
