One would think that in a valley where the Matanuska Glacier once moved that the gravel would show random deposits of debris. If you enlarge this photo you will see clear signs of stratification indicating water deposit.
Not a hundred feet away near the edge of the Matanuska River cliff you see what looks to a farmer like glacially pushed and deposited gravel- the exception rather than the rule in cuts around here.
These are like pages out of a history book waiting for words. Any geologists around?
