The mistakes of the past are on clear display two-and-a-half hours southwest of Atlanta. The Providence Canyon has been declared as one of Georgia’s natural wonders, although its origin story isn’t very natural. This Georgian gem was accidently created by 1800’s settlers and their poor farming practices. By not looking after the soil, erosion occurred and spurred these striking formations of orange and white rock.
