These glacial features are amazing. Perfectly round as though measured by a machine. Nature continues to surprise...

We stopped by the overlook area to snap a few photos. These glacial potholes in Shelburne Falls on the Deerfield River are at the base of Salmon Falls in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts are always amazing. Salmon used to run up the river here!

The small town offers food and shopping adjacent to the falls.

The Glacial Potholes and the Bridge of Flowers and in close proximity to one another. The visit is very pleasant- worth a detour for the half hour or so you'll spend there. Parking is free and available nearby as is the town of Shelburne Falls-- a typical Western Mass town.

View was great. Looked like something you would see in the parks in the West. Colors were amazing. When in Shelburne Falls make sure you stop by.

The waterfall was artificially created by a dam, but the surrounding rocks, "glacial potholes," are colorful and naturally occurring in a striking arrangement. There's a little overlook for tourists. It's just a short distance, maybe 2 or 3 blocks, from the Bridge of Flowers. It was a lovely stopover on the way from NYC to Vermont!
