Stream and Bedrock. Notice how flowing water has cut the stream bed here, exposing the bedrock of Brunswick Shale. This rock, deposited under the Atlantic Ocean about 160 million years ago, is red because it contains large amounts of rusted iron. Brunswick Shale is the dominant bedrock for the southern two-thirds of Hunterdon County.
