Seems like the Map maker doesn’t leave the eastern side of the state much. I thought the same thing.

And he didn't even do the east very well.

Nope. Racism wasn't as big a thing up in NEPA because 100 years ago it was all immigrants who were looking for work and got roped into working in the coal mines. Everybody came out the same color.

Sorry, I thought "dragon" was a KKK reference.

If anything, the mountains in NEPA aren't all that misty. Centralia is still burning.

The coal region of pa is an already defined thing. It’s specific to the anthracite mining areas in the northeast.
