10/2001 - Dropped in with my dad when I was living there and he visited. At that time you could pay $5 or so per person to drive up and over to the pit. They had a makeshift visitors’ center set up in a portable. The trucks were enormous.

It is at once scary and devastating and awe-inspiring just how much they have removed in the almost 20 years since then.
