Snapshot #780: Skyline Coal Mine

March 7, 2013.  Ephraim, Utah.  I am fortunate to be able to spend several days with my brother in Ephraim, Utah.  Today my mother and I drove with his wife up to Skyline Mine, where he is a civil engineer.  To get there we drove nearly an hour through mountainous terrain heavily blanketed in white snow.  The vistas were tauntingly appealing, yet knowingly treacherous.  I spent the evening learning about coal and how it is mined today.  I found this video very helpful in understanding the enormous machinery that is used at the mine.
