Homewood Sandstone Slump Block

This block of Homewood Sandstone, along the left side of the road from Kildoo Falls to the mill, has moved downslope from its outcrop on the right side of the road. Glacial lake drainage eroded the Mercer Shale beneath the Homewood, until there was no longer enough support, and this block (and all of the others in the vicinity) separated along joints and moved downslope to their present positions.
