Who’s ready to explore! First thing we want you to do – take a DEEP breath in! That’s fresh air, and it’s so good for you! That clean, crisp smell that you rarely find if you live in the city. Next, look around you. How beautiful is nature, and how fun will it be to explore!?
Can you see the massive gullies as deep as 150 feet? You must be in Georgia’s “Little Grand Canyon”! This time, however, it really shows the impact that humans have on the land. These gullies were caused by poor farming practices during the 1800s – pretty crazy huh!? (They do make for amazing photos though, so don’t forget your camera!)
There is a rim trail which you can admire the views of the canyons from, but make sure you stay behind the fences because you never know what the edges might do! It is nature after all…
The park also hold very cool events such as the magical Astronomy Night, where you can witness the twinkling sky without almost any light pollution – it’s amazing how many stars you can see in the sky – and geology days where you can get a very incredible up close look at the park and all it’s secrets! Great for kids to really learn about our earth and the universe about it.
If you can’t wait to start again early the next day, you can always stay the night! Camping, cottages and units are available nearby at Florence Marina State Park.
