St. Croix moraine

#443: View to the west from the drainageway just east of the St. Croix moraine, along State Hwy. 27. The viewer is looking up at the east slope of the moraine. The moraine is composed of a cap of Superior-lobe glacial till covering older glacial deposits. The moraine extends north and south to the margins of Todd County. It is between 0.5 miles (south) and 2 miles (north) wide and is one of the highest topographic features on the east side of Todd County.
