Red Dog Road

If you grew up in a coal town you probably had a red dog road nearby or even a driveway made from the leftover waste of a nearby coal mine. The material, left over from the waste coal piles, (known in this area as bony piles) made an excellent road material.

This photo was taken on Aultman's Run Road, one of the best red dog roads remaining in Indiana County.
