It is only a overlook of this enormous water filled (including dangerous minerals), but it is a world class site that should not be missed

My last visit tot he overlook was still in the days it was being mined - long gone. Still get a perspective of how open pit mining was done

This is an excellent example of what can occur without proper planning and execution. The areas resources were exploited and ultimately poisoned and area. Good place to educate yourself on the mining practices, and impact of old mining technology.

It's a look at what was once a big open pit mine which is now holding tons of water which is very toxic. The walk out to the over look is short and there is a recording about the mine I would say it's not on my list to revisit

Beautiful view of the pit. Press a button and you can hear the history of the pit. We found it to be very informative and interesting.

Interesting tunnel to get to the viewing area. Viewing area is quite an impressive pit filled with water. It was an interesting spot worth a stop if you are in the area.

If you visit Butte, you gotta see the pit... It is a huge part of Montana and western mining history. Storyboards are very well done. There's a telescope set up on the viewing stand and a short audio recording.
