Still photo: A closer view of the Long Prairie River channel, St. Croix
moraine, and the conical shaped kames on top of the moraine.
Initial view: Looking east from township road southwest of Browerville.
View is across the Long Prairie River channel to the St. Croix moraine,
the ridge on the horizon.
Panning to the south along the river channel and following the St. Croix
The conical shaped hills on the moraine are mostly kames (see DEM for
asterisks illustrating locations of mapped kames), the more elongate hills
could be crevasse ridges (sediment deposited in an ice crevasse). In general,
the northern segment of the St. Croix moraine was a zone where ice stagnation
was common (#440 for instance), thus this part of the moraine contains
more stagnant ice features, such as kames and crevasse fills, than other
parts of the moraine.
