Granitic gneiss in the bed of the Deerfield River at the “Shelburne Falls Potholes,” actually glacial plunge pools.

This is a great place to pass a steamy summer afternoon, albeit not a very private one. Expect to see more expansive views of The Potholes as the summer progresses.

Okay, I can’t resist… that is some nice gneiss! You know where else they have nice gneiss? Nice, France!

Just ’cause it looks gneiss, don’t think I take it for granite.

I don’t go for that schist. It clashes with my sedimentary lifestyle…

ba-dum-boom!
