Great tag! Lots of "coal history" in that area. Some good, some not so good.

Supposed to be?
In 2005 ABC filmed a documentary of "The scariest places on Earth" This is Lake Shawne and it was one of those places.
I was so scared I took the picture from the seat.

Here is a picture from the gate. I guess it will have to do. But if anyone wants to ride in I 'll give extra credit.

I have been by there more than once.
Great tag! Some more fine West Virginia history, also the site of the Mitchell Clay Indian massacre!
