One BIG pit, originally uploaded by LeggNet.

The first time I visited the Kennecott Copper Mine was in 1993 with my family. When we reached the visitor center and looked over into the large open pit, my son Kris (who was five at the time) asked, “Are they building a volcano?”.

After our most recent visit, I called Kris to let him know that they still haven’t finished the volcano. He was thankful for the update.
