consin was divided into two lobes such as are shown in (Fig. 2).
There is equally good reason for believing that the scouring action
by the ice lobes in these valleys both deepened and widened them.
The Fox-Winnebago Valley is therefore due, first, to the
presence of alternating soft and hard layers of rock; second, to
the erosion of a valley in the softer layers by an ancient river;
and, third, to the somewhat further deepening and widening of
that valley by glacial erosion.
