© C. T. Bodwell A 54-YEAR-OLD MYSTERY IS THE "KIDNAPPING" OF THIS BOWLDER Until June 20, 1883, the huge egg-shaped rock, 10 feet wide and 12 feet long, was wedged between the walls of the Flume Gorge, as shown in this old picture. Then came a memorable flood which swept through the Flume with terrific force. From that day to this the bowlder has never been found (page 93). ©C.T.Bodwell STRANGE ROCK FORMATIONS ARE LOST RIVER'S LURE This hole was bored into therock by amighty torrent that plunged down the gorge in late-glacial times. Lost River, inKinsman Notch, was "lost" perhaps thousands of years ago whenthe receding ice sheet orastorm thrust bowlders into the gorge (page 93).
