Hudson Canyon

At sea
40 15.77 N 073 58.12 W

Our offshore weather forecasts talk about the area between Hudson Canyon and Baltimore Canyon. Ever heard of them? I read a geology book that explains it.

During an ice age the ocean level was 400 feet lower than today. The Hudson ran down over the exposed continental shelf and carved a canyon the length and depth of the Grand Canyon. If you look at the ocean version of Google Earth you can see it. I think that's very cool.

We are just off the Jersey coast. First time I wrote an article and posted it offshore with my Droid.

Just got a call from Dave. He will meet us in Norfolk on monday night and sail with us to Elisabeth City. :)
