Transcript of Constructive and Destructive Forces

By: B-rock Herrero HIMSELF Chattahoochee River Providence Canyon Appalachian Plateau Cumberland Island Pigeon Mountain was both a destructive and constructive force in the nature of the Georgia landscape. It was destructive because the molten lava destroying everything in its path. It was constructive because the molten lava would create new rock and sometimes the ash served to replenish the soil, making it more fertile. .The mountain had 3 volcanic openings but they are all extinct and are really hard to spot unless you know what you are looking for. One is still in the shape of a cone, one is flat and the other is a blow out. It is located in the extreme Northwest Georgia, about half way between Atlanta, GA, and Chattanooga, TN. Today it is called Rocktown or Lost Wall. The Chattahoochee River was formed by erosion of rocks which is a destructive force. The Chattahoochee River is the river that separates Georgia and Alabama. It is the longest river in Georgia with a length of 430 miles. Along with the Flint and Apalachicola Rivers, the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin (ACF River Basin) is formed. This canyon was created by a destructive force of water. It is sometimes called the "Little Grand Canyon." It is 500 feet tall and the state park is 1,003 acres of land. It is considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia. This landform was constructively created by glaciers. This plateau stretches from New York to Alabama. It is on the western side of the Appalachian Mountains. Technically, it is an eroded plain of sedimentary rock, not mountains. A large portion of the plateau is actually a coalfield. This island was made by constructive forces because it was formed by water and serves to protect the mainland as a barrier island. It is known for its sweeping salt marshes, maritime forests, freshwater sloughs, and hard-packed sandy beaches. It is 17 miles long, is only accessible by ferry, only 300 people are allowed on the island at one time and no one can stay for longer than 7 nights.

- Most people stay in Eufaula, Alabama. The Quality Inn there is the best bang for your buck in town.
Most people know Eufaula as the city that takes you to the Florida beaches.
- You are also close to the Okefenokee while here so you could stay near there as well. A nice Quality Inn in Helen would be a nice place to stay to explore and tube the Chattahoochee River. Your group could get rooms here for about $89 a night. Lodging for the Appalachian Plateau
-To make sure you spend as little as possible, see this site while staying in Helen, Georgia visiting the Chattahoochee and you will reduce cost on your lodging. Lodging
-It would be a great idea to stay at Jekyll Island at the reasonably priced Days Inn and also make time for the group to see the Georgia Sea Turtle Center there too. Rooms there are beach front and breakfast is included for the group. Lodging Information
-This could also be seen while leaving from Helen, Georgia as the hotel site. It is up north near Chicamauga, Georgia. B-Rockin Voyages Would be honored to have the West Side Stingers join the Rockin Adventures with
