Southern WV Coalfields A Versys Adventure

Byways and backways (a couple of very backways) into the heart of the Flat Top-Pocahontas Coalfield in Mercer and McDowell Counties, WV Mining began in the 1880s and extraction of the high-grade metallurgical coal continued through the energy boom 1970s. A few small mines remain today but since 1990 this coalfield has been in decline and outmigration has robbed the area of 75% of its population.

Ashland, WV, now a tourist destination, is representative of the many mining camps that sprang up around coal mines in the Coalfield's heyday.

This one was pretty cool and seemed to go away too quickly, so I thought I would give er a bump so others may find it...

PS. I've heard several covers of "never leave harlan alive" and Darrell Scotts version is by far the best one.
