Figure 5. Oblique air photo of Half Mile Beach, back-barrier dunes, blowouts, salt marsh and pans (ponds), and edge of the Little River tidal channel. Meandering of the Little River has cut into the back dunes and left relict ridges. Foot traffic prevents fragile dune vegetation from growing along a path to the beach from Todds Point. Photo taken by S. M. Dickson, Maine Geological Survey, 1987.
