« Big Muskie's Bucket! | Main | Springtime Saturday in Central Park »

16 April 2009



You're right. When the photos appeared on my screen, I thought, "Home. That looks like Kansas."

Nice rich colors in the photos - and that orange highway stripe adds a lot.

Google's sky view shows the real story though.


It'll take decades for the topsoil to develop again. Muskie would have done her business at least 20 years ago. I'm not sure when the coal was removed or when reclamation started.

The light was really nice that late in the afternoon. The orange stripe is nearly glowing. I have a couple of pictures without the road but you don't get a good sense of scale.
