|New York Landscape Regions in Google Earth: Tug Hill Plateau|
The Tug Hill Plateau tour is part of the New York Landscape Regions Collection of Google Earth Tours, created by a group of New York State science educators. The tour introduces students to the many waterfalls of the plateau, which is formed of layers of sandstone and shale. It also points out that the plateau recieves more snow than any location east of the Rocky Mounatins due to the lake-effect from Lake Ontario and its elevation, which is 2,100 feet at the highest point. There is also a visit to a fish hatchery.
