Areas laid to waste near the condemned town of Centralia PA...

One of the lonely dead trees which had its roots burned away by the fire beneath. For some reason, lots of people like this picture. For some reason, I like it too.

Can you see the smoke here? EGAD! It's a chimney of Hell! And boy does it STINK!!! You heard it here first folks: Hell smells like an egg fart.
This wasteland is said to be the site of garbage pit where it all began, probably ignited by a cigarette. The trash fire went on to kindle the anthracite coal vein which is expected to keep burning for 100-1000 years! To paraphrase Smokey the Bear: Only YOU can prevent coal mine fires.

And no, that's not all, folks!
