Ever been to the Otter Creek Valley in southeastern Montana?

Seems like a really good spot for a coal mine, doesn't it? Arch Coal just resubmitted their permit application to mine the Otter Creek Valley in southeastern Montana. Their first one was rejected by the MT DEQ over a year ago. If you've never been to the Otter Creek valley, here are a couple photos to help you visualize where a financially troubled coal company is proposing to build one of the largest coal mines in the nation. All photos taken July 2014.

  1. Beautiful photos. Beautiful country. It’s good to just know it is there, and would be so sad to lose it.
