The photo above showing Tallulah Gorge was taken in May of 2003 from Tallulah Gorge State Park, Georgia. This impressive gash in the Earth's crust is two miles (3.2 km) long and nearly 1,000 feet (305 m) deep. The gorge of course slopes down in the direction of the river but also tilts north to south, giving the steep granite layers their unique folded appearance. Tallulah has been given the nickname the "Niagara of the South."
