Providence Canyon, GA

Going to start posting regularly again. Went To Providence Canyon, GA with some of the youth from our church back in November. The "Little Grand Canyon of the East" was created in the late 1800's by poor farming practices. Absolutely love the mixture of the colors in these photographs. At the bottom of the 150 foot gorges were little streams eating further into the soft rock evident of a water table just below the surface. The canyon is still getting bigger to this day and every few years the rim trails are moved further away from the crumbling rim.





































Over the fence and on the edge

























Forrest is such a rebel.



































































A trail used to go through right here and recently crumbled away. 

























Stuck inside!







The rock walls are extremely soft.









Looks like someone threw orange paint on the walls. it's the red Georgia clay pouring on the limestone during rainfalls.







Inside the canyons the temperature dropped significantly due to the very high walls blocking the harsh sun.





Forrest got into trouble and sent to the corner.











looks like snow!
