I am one of those people who is always seeking adventure. Recently I discovered a place I had never heard about and it blew my mind. Providence Canyon State Park in Lumpkin, Georgia is amazing. If you live on the east coast and can’t make your way out to the Grand Canyon, you should 100% visit Providence Canyon State Park.
It is a much smaller scale than the Grand Canyon but really just as beautiful. These are all photos I captured on my iPhone. Pretty incredible.
I was able to share this adventure with my beloved boyfriend, Max. We started off on the top of the canyon. We may or may not have hopped a fence to scale the canyon ourselves… but I’ll leave that to your imagination. It was incredible to be standing at the top, inches away from the edge where you can see a view that truly can’t be described with words. Take a look at this.
Risky, I guess.
We then wanted to see what the bottom of the canyon looked like. And there, we found the most adventure. The night before our trip to the canyons, there was a huge rain storm in the area. Once we got to the bottom, there was practically a river of the rainwater washing down from the canyons. Needless to say, my sneakers got ruined. So if you plan on going, maybe consider bringing water shoes.
Being at the base of the canyon was incredible. We were completely surrounded by the red and orange Georgia clay. I felt like a little kid again being able to climb everything around me.
This ever-evolving canyon is a must-visit for my fellow adventurers. Be sure to visit Providence Canyon State Park the next time you are in Georgia. If you’re anything like me, you will love it. Especially YOU my fellow Seminoles! This place is only about 2.5 hours away from FSU!
