This series of 10 photos were taken on Feb 27 2000. They go atop the Upper Terrace, and end at the beginning of the Fill. Many years ago the Westfield river was much higher. Of course so was the land. (And this after being beneath glacial lake Hitchcock!) The river once flowed around the upper terrace such as it does today around the park's southern tip.
