Skaneateles Lake

A relatively small Finger Lake at 16 miles long, average three quarters of a mile across, and average 150 feet deep and 300 feet deep at its deepest point, the topography of this lake clearly shows the effects of glacial scouring. The Finger Lakes were scoured more deeply than depth measurements would indicate as sediment has since filled them to some extent.  All eleven of the Finger Lakes flow north into the Lake Ontario basin.

  1. it's beautiful. I recently visited. I live so close and yet I had never been there. And the village of Skaneateles is really a wonderful place to visit as well. I enjoy your photos! Cheers!
