I stumbled upon this moving 3-minute video of the abandoned coal mines which dot the Appalacian Mountain countryside.  The film was created by Jim Lo Scalzo, and its set to a haunting American folk song which undoubtedly comes from a time when these coal mines were the cornerstones of their communities.  Simply beautiful.
