U-Haul Showcases Georgia’s ’Little Grand Canyon’


LUMPKIN, Ga. - U-Haul is set to release 600 new 26-foot moving vans depicting Georgia’s “Little Grand Canyon.” Formally known as Providence Canyon State Conservation Park, this beautiful canyon is an amazing network of gorges and cliffs in southwest Georgia that wasn’t created by the actions of a river or a stream, as other canyons were; this remarkable natural wonder came into being because preexisting soft soils and loose sediments were molded and shaped by misguided farming practices.

On Saturday, April 14, U-Haul will officially unveil the Georgia SuperGraphic as its “Venture Across America” Campaign visits Providence Canyon State Conservation Park in Lumpkin, Ga. The public is invited to attend the brief ceremony, then join a ranger-led Spring Wildflower Walk through the colorful canyon.

“We are thrilled to partner with Georgia’s State Parks to educate the public about this amazing geologic feature. Providence Canyon is located a few miles west of Lumpkin, and 25 miles south of Columbus, so we encourage people to visit Georgia and see all this great state has to offer,” stated Tony Fretwell, president, U-Haul Company of Southern Georgia. “People all over will have the privilege of seeing this ’Little Grand Canyon’ and its rare, summer-blooming plumleaf azaleas for years to come.”

“I can’t tell you how proud I am to have Providence Canyon chosen to represent Georgia!” exclaimed Park Manager Joy Joyner. “These U-Haul trucks will crisscross the United States for years to come, showcasing Georgia and our state parks to all Americans.”

U-Haul has been decorating its moving trucks with vibrant images featuring distinctive features of every U.S. state and Canadian province since 1988 with the launch of the “America’s Moving Adventure” and “Canada’s Moving Adventure” SuperGraphics campaigns. The newest graphics are part of the “Venture Across America” campaign that highlights little-known facts about North America. Nearly 200 different images have been created since the SuperGraphics Program began.

Operated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Providence Canyon State Park is located in southwest Georgia’s Stewart County. It features hiking trails, a visitor center, primitive campsites and picnic areas.
