-  Event: Flyover of Mountaintop Removal and Reclamation Sites.
-  "Following the rally in Cabin Creek, and a meeting of the Appalachian Voices board of directors, Hume Davenport, of Southwings in Tennessee, took board members and residents of the Coal River Valley on a series of "flyovers" in his six-passenger plane, to view mountaintop removal and reclamation from the air. Southwings is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to environmental education.
-  Commenting on this view of Hazy Creek, Charles Bradford wrote: "If you follow the road into Hazy Creek, you will see that it forms a "Y." The hollow directly above the right prong of the "Y" is the Road Hollow. Just down from this, toward the viewer, is the Board Tree Hollow. Some people called it the Mont Hollow, because Mont Asbury had his house right at the mouth of it. The next hollow up from the Road Hollow is the Wolf Pen Hollow. Both Rick and I were born at my Granddad Jo Wills' place, at the mouth of Wolf Pen Hollow."
