"Our modern industrial economy takes a mountain covered with trees, lakes, running streams and transforms it into a mountain of junk, garbage, slime pits, and debris."
     - Edward Abbey

A shot from inside Kennecott's Bingham Canyon Copper Mine, the world's largest manmade excavation. In fact, the mine is so large that it is visible with the naked eye from space - a feat shared only with the Great Wall of China. Rio Tinto certainly has the practice of capping mountains down. But the movie they play inside of the visitor's center would prefer you to think of them as angels.
