The Basin

from 40.00

Beneath a waterfall in the Pemigewasset River in Franconia, Hew Hampshire, is a granite pothole about 20 feet (6 m) across known simply as "The Basin".  It was scrubbed out by stones dragged (and eventually deposited) by the retreating North American ice sheet, and since made smooth by 15 millennia of rapidly whirling pebbles and grit eroding the rock into a smooth, circular cave-like formation.
