Providence Canyon in Georgia, USA at Sunset

Providence Canyon is near Columbus, Georgia.  For a canyon that is approximately 100 years old, the progressive pace of erosion is remarkable. Beautiful colors make up the layers of soil of its 200 foot walls.  Providence Canyon encompasses more than 3,000 acres.

I thought the one hundred year old written on the card was an error, but check this out....

Providence Canyon State Park is a state park located in west central Georgia. The park contains Providence Canyon, which is sometimes called Georgia's "Little Grand Canyon".
Providence Canyon actually is not a purely natural feature — the massive gullies (the deepest being 150 feet) were caused by erosion due to poor farming in the 1800s.
