Providence Canyon

My brother and I visited Providence Canyon in southwest Georgia over the weekend. Often referred to as the "Little Grand Canyon", it is a beautiful network of canyon walls. It was created by accident in the 1800's due to bad farming habits. The walls were a natural work of art, composed of layer upon layer of colorful soil. Georgia red clay comprised a hefty portion of the top most layer, which gave way quickly to white kaolin. Traces of golden hues reminiscent of safron, and purple soils (yes, purple soils) were also visible. The backdrop of colorful fall trees and an azure sky made the scene that much more beautiful. See my pictures on my photos page.
