Kennecott’s Bingham Canyon Copper Mine, Utah   Leave a comment

Not scenic, and a bit discomfiting for someone who tries to eliminate the “hand of man” from most photographs.  This is Kennecott’s Bingham Canyon copper mine — the largest open pit copper mine in the world.  To give you an idea of scale, that little white dot to the right and above the green “lake” of water is a fairly large building.  The trucks that haul copper ore out of the pit are about the size of a two-story house.  Difficult to comprehend.  An entire mountain . . . vanished.
