My dad lives about a mile from the Etam earth station that "AT&T" operates.
I know where the other picture is too, but I'm not going to play. Would not be fair as I'm a local.

OK then I'll raise the bar for you WVhilbilly. This one is very close to where you live, but hey, this road looks like so many others. I know you've been down this road though.

That road could be 12 mile road or Pringle Falls road. But I'm probably wrong on both counts.
Last time I tried to ride thru Pringle the Army had it gated

Too many clowns on quads tearing shit up I guess.
When I was in my late teens my cousin and I could ride quads all over the area where I live. I know some fantastic rides there thru ridgetop farms.
We knew the property owners, closed gates after going thru them and didn't wreck things.

A few years later some other guys started riding the same area, cutting fences, chasing livestock and such.
You would probably get shot riding thru there now, damn shame as I could put you on enough dirt roads and logging trails there to keep you riding for days.

Coal

West Virginia produces more coal than any other state in the Union.
It brings in large sums of tax revenue.
About 20,000 people are employed by the mining companies.
Mountain top removal mining is highly controversial.
The sheer scale of such operations is mind boggling.

====

With cheap coal fueling 50% of generated electricity in the country many
West Virginia's mountains will probably be leveled.

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2010/05/100520-science-environment-blair-mountain-coal-massey-energy-nation/

In 1921 Blair Mountain was the site of a battle between miners and
government forces.
