Cow on a moraine


Lake Zurich in Switzerland is a glacial lake, with large lateral moraines now covered in houses and/or cows.  Highway 3 runs along the top of one of these moraines, which has a long, straight, flat ridge top, perfect for a road.  I have not seen many erratics or glacially transported boulders, but this area has had a long history of human occupation, so maybe people removed most of the boulders, or perhaps these moraines are made of finer material (cobbles, sand, silt).
