"We took a minute just to stare at it. When you see Kennecott Copper Mine from the sky it is hard to grasp its size, and when you see it from across the valley it’s even harder. When you stare at the mine from a lookout view somewhere in the Oquirrhs it’s actually no easier to understand the size of this giant hole, but it makes you feel small. From the lookout there are trucks that are dwarfed by the size of the mine. There is a school bus somewhere around the middle of the mine. It looked like a toy parked there, but for some reason it’s still impossible to understand the size of the hole."
