    Weather was the limiting factor. Visibility was far too poor for serious exploration but I did get some pics and had a great time!



    This is a fixture. An abandoned dragline.


    Crazy big piece of machinery. :cool:

    I want to operate that big crane. Makes me think how bad was it for the owner to just leave it there.

    Most of this kind of equipment is now obsolete and they are too expensive to move and are usually sold for scrap.

    Troof... it was better 7-8 years ago... took my kids up there & you could still feel the heat from the fire in places...
    The spot under the highway had cooled. Saw that for myself two years ago.

    Yep hillside doesn’t even smoke nor do the pipes drilled for vents. Now it’s wuite literally just a dump. I’m not sure if it’s burning out or if it went deeper or what their isn’t a whole lot of info on the area anymore. But I find it curious as to why the locals diddnt want to leave.

    They were sitting on quite possible the largest deposit of coal in pa. They were convinced the government knew how to put out the fires but wanted them to leave so that they would not have to pay mineral rights to them. Last person living their died 2 or 3 years ago and suddenly no smoke :boom: Maybe they weren’t crazy. I did a senior thesis on that place it was one of my favorites to explore we were up their almost every weekend through highschool

    Yes. The same vein that runs under Ashland. Something like 3billion in anthracite coal is still buried up there.
