Kennebago River Geomorphology

I've had a layman's fascination with local geology ever since I first read Dabney W. Caldwell's Roadside Geology of Maine. I guess that's why I find this photo essay on Kennebago River Geomorphology so interesting.
The channels of the Kennebago River between Little and Big Kennebago Lake are relatively straight. They have become entrenched beneath the glacial outwash that makes up the lowlands surrounding the channel. It is a G4 stream type following Rosgen's terminology.
