Photographer's Note

In the Boulder Field, there are spots where the rocks have created circular depressions in the ground, almost as if the pressure of the boulders caved in the ground below. I have found one which had water at the bottom. I have found the following discussing water in a brochure: "With advances in technology, geologists are still researching various aspects of Boulder Field which may one day reveal new details of its formation. For instance, there is debate about how far the boulders moved. Some geologists say the boulders traveled about one mile; others say they did not travel at all, but were weathered in place. Some also dispute the lack of sand or other debris between the boulders, saying it washed away or settled under the stones; others wonder if it was ever there at all. Water drains from a bog east of the field, flows through the ground underneath the field, and emerges on the other side officially becoming Hickory Run stream. Did this water flow help form the field or remove the debris from between the rocks?" This may have been a remnant of the torrential rains we had encountered on the way the day before or it is the source of Hickory Run.

It is estimated that the field of rocks is about 10-12 feet deep.
