Geocache Description:

At the coordinates you’ll find easy parking only a few feet from Greenbush Kettle. Follow the well marked trail to the viewing platform
Permission was asked of and received from the Forest headquarters of the Kettle Moraine State Forest Northern Unit.

Along the margins of the Greenbay and Lake Michigan ice lobes, many depressions called kettles were created. They were made as the glacier receded. Great blocks of ice broke off and were covered with sediment that was washed from the melting glacier. As the blocks melted the ground sank forming kettles.
While most kettles are at or below the water table they become lakes or ponds. Greenbush Kettle for the most part is dry except for the very bottom which gives a rare view of an ice age formation.
As you stand on the viewing platform try to imagine the glacier stretching from horizon to horizon and reaching up to a mile above you. The water washing down the face carrying grit, sand, and rocks creating the landscape you see around you.
To claim this cache Email me with the two unique features this kettle is noted for. Also the estimated number of years since the glaciers melted.

When you log this cache go ahead and post a picture of you standing on the platform. The picture is not needed to claim the cache.
