    how fun! I love the idea of camping every Thanksgiving. I tried to get my husband out of the house for a Fri-Sun trip but no luck this year 🙁

    Poor Tiger. Hope is foot is okay! Awesome pictures 🙂

    • It was a beautiful place! Tiger is doing fine – he just had a couple of sores develop on his pad and we didn’t want to push him and make it worse. After a day spent atop a pillow palace on the couch yesterday, he is as good as new:)

    Providence Canyon is one of my favorite places in GA. I’ve been a dozen times, and I would love to camp at one of their backcountry sites on the floor of the canyon someday.

    • How cool! This was my first time there but I would definitely love to go back. We were planning on doing the 7 mile backcountry loop the 2nd day, but that’s when we had to bow out because of Tiger. I bet those sites are something else:)

        I bet that place is breathtaking at sunset and sunrise. That’s all I want, really, is to see the colors as the sun sets and then rises.

        • We were able to see close to sunset (about 4:30). We were still shivering by the campfire with our coffee at sunrise:) The colors were stunning as the sun moved through the sky. I hope you get to do your backcountry site someday so you can witness both from the warmth of your campfire:)

  4. I always love the way you find lessons in everything. Excellent.

    […] The canyon is not a natural formation, rather it was formed due to poor farming practices in the early to mid 19th century. The land originally consisted of gently rolling wooded hills. The early cotton farmers cleared the land of all existing vegetation and dug shallow furrows into the soil every planting season. Erosion took care of the rest. Now, almost 200 years later, the canyons are 150 feet deep and growing wider by 3-5 feet each year. Read the rest of the post. […]
