As the last ice age ended, retreating glaciers transformed the terrain of New Hampshire in drastic ways. They were responsible for the creation of Franconia Notch, for example, and many of the natural features within it. Glaciers also left behind an assortment of lakes and ponds that we can still see today. In the town of New London, Philbrick-Cricenti Bog is a well-preserved example of one of these former ponds.
