Figure 12. A photo from March 6, 2010 of the new Morse River channel looking north toward West Beach. The rapid downward erosion of the channel results in a steep vertical cut into the sand spit (right) where large blocks of sand fall into the flowing channel. Bank erosion even exhumed a buried yellow lobster trap. Photo courtesy of L. Sewall, Bates-Morse Mountain Conservation Area.
