Day Three Hundred Thirty-Seven

Georgia - Fort Benning

For: US to US Traveling Envelope Round Robin - Group 5
Notes: Fort Benning, in western Georgia, was established in 1918 to provide basic training for World War I unites.  Today, its 182,000 acres supports more than 120,000 people, including active-duty solidiers, family members, retirees and civilian employees.  It is home to the US Army Armor School, the US Army Infantry School, and the US Army Ranger School.  



Georgia - Providence Canyon

For: US to US Traveling Envelope Round Robin - Group 5
Notes: Providence Canyon State Park, which covers 1,003 acres, is located not far south of Fort Benning.  Unlike the Grand Canyon, Providence Canyon was not created over thousands of years.  Rather, it was formed by erosion caused by poor farming practices in the 19th century.  The canyon is 150 feet deep at its deepest point.
