Ancient Sandbar

As the glaciers carved their way across the landscape, they scoured out deep depressions that would one day become lakes, and ground boulders into dust. As they retreated , they deposited the sand, gravel and stones they accumulated as they slowly pushed down from the north. This sandbar is a clue to how far south the glaciers advanced before climate change caused them to melt.

The glacier that left this sandbar formed Lake Maumee, which over time, became present day Lake Erie.
