Castile, NY, US

The name of this overlook comes from the Seneca word Gah-Da-Hoh, or "bank in front." During a warming period between glaciers more than 100,000 years ago, the Genesee River created a new course by eroding this valley. The repassage of the great ice sheets then created gentler slopes and desirable farmland. Subsequent wanderings of the river in this valley cut a cliff face into the gentler slope and thus formed the "bank in front."

Hint: in the roots
