2021 Roadtrip to Cloudland Canyon State Park in Rising Fawn Georgia on March 8th

My visit

Sadie and I headed out on our EPIC 2021 Roadtrip on March 8th. Cloudland Canyon State Park in Georgia was our first stop! We only spent a short time in the park, so I didn't get many photos. These photos were taken from a scenic overlook. This park looks interesting, and I would love to come back for a longer visit one day!

General Info

(from https://cloudlandcanyon.org)

Cloudland Canyon State Park is a 3,485 acres Georgia state park located near Trenton and Cooper Heights on the western edge of Lookout Mountain. One of the largest and most scenic parks in Georgia, it contains rugged geology, and offers visitors a range of vistas across the deep gorge cut through the mountain by Sitton Gulch Creek, where the elevation varies from 800 to over 1,800 feet.[1] Views of the canyon can be seen from the picnic area parking lot, in addition to additional views located along the rim trail. At the bottom of the gorge, two waterfalls cascade across layers of sandstone and shale, ending in small pools below. The park, previously known as Sitton Gulch (or Gulf) or Trenton Gulf, was purchased in stages by the state of Georgia beginning in 1938. Under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, a project of Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression built the first facilities and signs in the park, which opened the following year. Today the park features a variety of campsites, cabins, hiking and recreational activities.
