Too true. I have several orange pairs of shoes, and shorts from swimming and fishing around the area.
I once went fishing with my grandfather up on Blacklick Creek by Ebensburg. We were out all day in the water. From the middle of my shins down looked like I had a spray tan for the next week. No matter how had I tried to scrub it off, the orange never left.
I also once took a brand new Kayak from where the Conemaugh and Blacklick make the Kiski in Blarisville, to Saltsburg. The Kayak was tan when I bought it, but the lower half that was in the water is orange.
I’m surprised I’m not dead from spending my childhood basically playing in acid mine drainage.
