The Drone Footage Of The Mississippi Red Bluff Is Hauntingly Beautiful
If you are looking for a new view on a local’s favorite spot, there is a hauntingly beautiful Mississippi Red Bluff video on YouTube that explores this natural phenomenon in a totally new way. This video journeys through the area with a bird’s eye view, high above this famous canyon made from red clay and other colorful sediments. Located in Marion County, about 1.5 miles west of Morgantown, this natural wonder will make you feel like you’re in the southwest!
Nicknamed “Mississippi’s Grand Canyon,” this state landmark is a geologic feature that has been formed by natural runoff. The Pearl River cut into these red banks of clay, soil, and sand, and the west bank is now exposed in a colorful display. The erosion has actually forced Mississippi Highway 587 to move at least two separate times.
Watch as videographer S. A. Colson Photography takes their drone high above the 371-foot cliffs. You’ll get a view of the Pearl River Basin and the bluff that slopes 200 feet down into the nearby floodplain. You’ll soar across the trees, red clay ridges, and Pearl River along with the video, as the beauty from below is showcased in all its glory. You won’t want to miss this drone footage!
There is a short and stunning trail that gives you an up-close and personal view of this Mississippi landmark. Have you ever taken the .8-mile hike down to see this beautiful spot? Put this hike on your bucket list if you’re looking for something to do this summer!
