Welcome to the tour developed by the fourth graders of South Hill School during the Fall of 2016. The summer of 2016 was a summer of drought, so we got to see the structure of the gorge well because the water was low. Groups of children focused on points of interest throughout the gorge, and wrote the descriptions you will experience together.
Many, many thanks to the experts that gave us the tour and taught us about the geology of the gorge. (any mistakes are our own!) :
