The Gulf would have been about 120 feet shallower than it is today.

The trees run along a small drop off along the Gulf's bottom south of the Fort Morgan peninsula.

For hundreds of yards, the stumps follow the lazy meanders of what appears to be an ancient river channel that runs to the north, toward the modern day Mobile-Tensaw Delta, which drains Alabama and portions of Tennessee, Georgia and Mississippi.
