Figure 7. Eroding bluff north of Sandy Point tip (located in Fig. 6). (A - photo at left) The relatively slow downslope movement (creep) of a large block of esker material is indicated by the bent trees on the block. As the block creeps down, the trees try to remain vertical and end up bent (May, 1998). (B - photo at right) May, 2000 view of same site as A. Note that one tree has fallen as the block slowly moves downward. The rate of erosion here is around 0.3 m/yr.
