Franconia Notch, Geology as Destiny

Franconia Notch is a scoured out glacial valley between two granite batholiths. The entire area is cut by swarms of dikes, particularly rhyolite ring dikes, which are clearly visible on the cliffs of Cannon Mt., a major exfoliation dome. The topography is spectacular, and the when the weather is good, the views are incomparable. Today was such a day. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
