    Those tailing piles are from the coal mining ghost town of Cedar Mountain. I've heard that there are more remnants of the Renton Coal Mine in the woods above the highway.

    Melmont was the other town I was trying to think of. What is that object at the upper end of the walkway in the last photo? It looks sort of like an ammo can.

    Where is this foundation located, relative to other items? I think it's supposed to be the reminant of a coal car repair facility, according to someone on Flickr.
