Red Bluff - Foxworth

Red Bluff - Foxworth

So I had no idea until this year that this place even existed. I found out about it while looking for places to photograph in Mississippi. It's also called Mississippi's Little Grand Canyon. While in Hattiesburg last weekend we made the roughly 40 mile trip from there to see it and we did some hiking around there while I shot some photos. This is the red bluff that looks out over the gigantic hole in the ground. We hiked down to the bottom of the bluff and walked through the canyon and we also hiked down to the railroad tracks that run by it and followed a little stream that runs under the tracks. Although, it's not pictured here, there is a road that has been half eroded away by the canyon that continues to erode every year. Apparently the erosion has caused the movement of the highway at least two times. A gentleman that I met there said that when he was a child back in the 80's it was maybe half the size that it is now. I would encourage you to visit this little known gem of Mississippi.

Clever title am I right? Yet another shot from Red Bluff with a better look at how the old highway is quickly eroding (yes I do actually know how to spell it) away.
