Coal plant in the high country

Coal plants like this one near Kemmerer, Wyoming are a more common sight in the high country plains of the vast American West as the United States struggles to meet its ever-increasing need for energy in the modern age. The scale of this plant is hard to fathom. The telephone poles in the distance are about 35 feet tall. The smoke stacks must be several hundred feet tall at least.
