Thought Nivek might appreciate seeing some photos from our home state. Blue Heron Coal Mine is located on the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River near Stearns, KY. Many of the original buildings and landmarks still exist along with the now defunct coal mine. Some buildings are shells erected on the site where original structures would have been. Each shell has an exhibit. Blue Heron is open to the public 24/7. There are no guides or security. It has been a local haunt for a long time. Other than the obvious creepy factor of being far into dense woods in the middle of nowhere in the dead of night, the only true experience that I can relate is having been pushed sideways and nearly off a steep embankment when I commented to a nervous member that the place was 'just full of old memories that won't hurt you'. These photos are open for interpretation. 115,116,117 are taken in succession, in the order posted, only seconds apart. No smoking. Elevated bridge. No observable mist.
