There are expanses of argillaceous sandstones of the Miocene age Altamaha Formation at the top of the gorge. There are often crack networks in the outcrops that form micro-habitats. The outcrops are harsh environments where plant species have to be specialized. For more information: www.nature.org/wherewework/northamerica/states/georgia/pr...
