Carolina Bays?







Contact George


Note the two bays sitting neatly atop a ridge of sand

described in 1970 as the Goldsboro Ridge.  


My question is this:  How does a lake form on a ridge of sand, to then be blown into a perfect ellipse without bursting and draining off the ridge?  Lakes form in depressions, not on hills.


This feature was caused suddenly, perhaps by a shockwave or multiple shockwaves passing over the landscape.
