Walking up to the Berkeley Pit viewing stand in Butte, Montana is like experiencing a strange, sterile birth. You enter a long, white tunnel lit with fluorescent tubes. A woman’s voice laid over innocuous country music echoes against the smooth walls. The recorded voice describes the history of this bizarre vestige of rabid industrialization.
