A River Runs Through It

Cushetunk - February 2018

This Milanville bottomland abutting the Delaware River also border Calkins Creek, just south (right) of here. Cultivated as meadow and farmland for generations, it brings to mind Connecticut  families who  trekked here in the 1750s and named it “Cushetunk.”

Ice jam at Calkins Creek

 

January 30, 2018. Following an inch of rain at historic Calkins Creek, near Milanville, ice was gouged and spun away last week - and stacked into “jams,” as in my 1/27 photograph.
Sealed into each icy block are “timeless” raindrops – which carved the original Upper Delaware Valley, and created glaciers when mammoths roamed its parts.
