Mount Shelden

This was shot on top of Mount Shelden, the highest point in Stony Creek Metropark. The hill was formed 13,800 years ago when one-mile thick glaciers that used to cover the area began to melt. This glacial feature is called a kame, and was formed at the base of the glacier by debri-laden meltwater flowing into a hole at the top of the ice.
