USGS - science for a changing world


Located in Wilmington, DE, the Cliffs of Alapocas Woods oppose the old Bancroft Mills across the Brandywine Creek. Along the creek you will find large exposures of Brandywine Blue Gneiss. Compared to other outcrops in the Piedmont of Delaware, the rock examples here are massive. These impressive rock features are enjoyed by the many that use the Northern Delaware Greenway and local rock climbers. These photos were taken by Sebastian Carisio as part of the Data Preservation Project 2009-2010.
