Trickles of water running down old Indian paths to springs formed the Providence Canyons, natural wonders of the Southeast.

These canyons, named for an old church that had to be moved out of their path, are often called "Little Grand Canyons" because of brilliant color effects of the 43 different soils revealed in the walls. These vari-colored walls and sharp pinnacles make the view awe-inspiring.

The canyons cover several hundred acres. The largest is a half mile long, 300 feet wide and 150 feet deep.
