Hempstead Harbor Mountain

I was on my way to the bagel store this morning,  driving in the rain, and I noticed this "mountain" on the other side of the harbor.  I would never have noticed it if it were not for the snow clinging to some of the ridges.  This is not, of course, a "mountain," it is a pile of gravel that has been brought in by barge from up the Hudson River, I think.  Then the gravel is used for roads, and it may be used to mix concrete.  I love the way the trees disappear into the mist in the background.
