      It does kind of look like a flying saucer on a pedestal doesn’t it…..

    I don’t care what the science may say. Had to have been the Devil!

    Thanks for returning Chris!

    Was your geology class with the great Tom Grasso, President-for-Life of the Canal Society of New York State and retired chair of geology at MCC?

    What I would wonder from Professor Barone is how a piece of the Lockport Dolostone became a glacial erratic and whether that is common? And whether there other examples of that? Most glacial erratics are granite boulders from the Canadian Shield that traveled south with the glacier. Lockport Dolostone would be found much closer to home on the Niagara Escarpment (that runs through downtown Niagara Falls, Lockport, and Rochester).

      Afraid my memory doesn’t go back far enough to remember the professor’s name!
