Caption: Glacial erosion. Grooves in bedrock from the movement of a glacier. This type of erosion is called abrasion. As a glacier moves across land, it picks up debris, which is carried with the ice. This carves deep scratches into the bedrock. Photographed on Victoria Vancouver Island, in British Columbia, Canada.
