Stripmining


Today I saw an ad in a Washington DC Metro car regarding mountaintop removal and stripmining in Appalachia. Here is the link.
I had visited a stripmine in 1971 near Mt. Storm WVa and was almost arrested for trespassing while taking pictures. The picture here shows a scene on the Virginia/Kentucky border, very much in coal country (taken summer 2005).
