Tallulah Gorge State Park, Georgia
natural gorge in the United States, Tallulah's two-mile long chasm walls
plummet down to the Tallulah River racing 1,000 feet below. Developed
after the Civil War as a tourist spot with the help of Confederate General
James (Old Pete) Longstreet's wife, the gorge became a popular recreational
showcase. In this century the Flying Walenda pater-familias walked a tightrope
wire across the chasm to the delight of his fans.
