Town Creek forms a spectacular coastal plain gorge. It is a tributary of Cemochechobee Creek which is a tributary of the Chattahoochee River. I did some research and found several references about the geology. The upper part of the gorge is developed in the Paleocene age, Nanafalia Formation. The lower portion of the gorge is developed in the Paleocene, age Clayton Formation. There are carbonate layers within this formation. The whitish rock visible in this image is Clayton limestone.
