Blue Heron Mine in Sterns, Kentucky
Once an active mining town, but today Blue Heron Mine is an outdoor museum. You can walk around the ghost structures and learn about life in the mining town from the recorded voices of the people that lived at Blue Heron. There is even a train ride through the mountains, but with Max in tow, we skipped the train. We walked through the tipple and across the bridge that spans the Big South Fork River.
