Geology:
Moraines: The Big Rock Ridge area displays a series of well-defined grounding-line moraines formed in the sea as the glacier retreated northwest about 15,300 years ago. They, as a cluster, are part of hte Pineo Ridge Moraine Complex. The large granite boulders dropped off the front of the glacier. Most have traveled in the ice flow up to 5 miles.
