The Adirondacks

Detailed Description

The Adirondacks as seen from Goodnow Mountain Watch Tower (left) and a Grenville Province gneiss found along the Goodnow Mountain Trail (right). The alternating layers of white and dark within the rock is the result of very high pressures and temperatures.  Photos courtesy of Alexandra Bancos.
