This series of 22 photos were taken on Feb 27 2000.The Drumlin is a glacial effect. As the glacier pushed southward loose soil would "ball" up and then be over-ridden by the ice. This resulted in the drumlins characteristic rounded elongate shape. The size of the drumlins can give you an idea of just how BIG the GLACIERS were!
