Nature's Wonder

Providence Canyon, Georgia

These photo's may surprise you. They are not from the southwest U.S., but are from south Georgia.  

Yesterday,  my husband and I decided to go for a drive. We came upon Providence Canyon State Park near Lumpkin GA.  It's like our own (very) miniature grand canyon here on the east coast. Apparently, this developed due to farming practices during the cotton growing days when the farmers depleted the land and plowed down the sides of hills. Over time the land eroded and these canyons arose.

I had no idea there were landscapes like this in this part of the country.  So as the beautiful weather is upon us, it's great time to do a little exploring. Sometimes you find surprises in your own backyard.
