View looking into the mine

04052550015326395335305.jpg
Johnson's Cove Mine, Yancey Co., North Carolina, USA

The image shows the central part of the mine. Part of the large cut was flooded and the rest of the cut has been eroded significantly. Nonetheless, high rock walls stand on both sides of parts of the cut. The walls of the cut stand at least 30' high and are covered in places by mosses and ferns.
