The space between these two points is a deep, broad gorge, filled to a greatheight with clay, sand, and gravel. This is evidently the ancient channel of the river, and 3et, after it had become filled with this drift, the stream found an easier passageby excavating the solid rock for 3 miles than by removing these loose materials. Still below this point the river leaves the broad channel and excavates a gorgethrough the shales, emerging into the broad vallej at Mount Morris. ^ It should be noted that the Genesee River has two western tributaries called Black Creek.The name Honeoye is also applied to two streams here discussed. 2 Geology Fourth Dist. of New York, by James Hall, 1843, pp. 344, 422.. .1 MIDDLE FALLS OF GENESEE RIVER AT I tjRTAuE, N
