Three years ago, the ridge ahead of us was relatively unspoiled, then CSX railroad "daylighted" (dug up and expanded) their tunnel, to allow more and taller rail cars through. They cut a huge gash across this bow ridge, and dumped the rocks and dirt they dug up on top of the ridge. What was forest now looks like an open pit mining site.
See gigapan.com/gigapans/89920 for a picture from nearly the same location closer to the beginning of the project, and some of the history.
