A Wild Experience!

My family and I spent the weekend in Columbus, Georgia. It was the first real family vacation we have had in several years. From walking through an abandoned cemetery to getting slobbered on by water buffalo, we had quite an adventure. Of course, I took plenty of pictures.

Providence Canyon (aka Georgia’s Little Grand Canyon) is a Georgia state park and was formed by erosion that resulted from poor farming methods used in the 1800s. It’s a beautiful canyon with some gullies as deep as 150 feet.

Providence Canyon was named after Providence Methodist Church. The church and a schoolhouse were originally built on land that now lies between the main gorges of the canyon. In 1859, a new church was built across from the canyon and is still used for special services.

Wild Animal Safari is a 500 acre park less than an hour south of Atlanta, Georgia. We went on the 3-mile Serengeti Adventure in a long, converted school bus with no windows. We fed the animals by hand. When I say we, I mean they. Even though I wanted to take pictures, I did NOT want to feel animal tongues on my hands. So, my husband sat by the window. Some of my pictures are over exposed or blurred but my hands were dry.
