Re: Leftovers

A windfarm would not be a nice addition.  It didn't do much for the view from Lassen Peak.

Thanks, Craig. Your favorite is one of my favorite places.

The people of Humboldt County, those who care, are currently fighting the owners of that land, currently used for beef cattle, trying to keep them from selling it to Shell Oil, or somebody, it changes regularly, to become a 20 mile wind farm. Currently, the roads down at both ends are steep, narrow, winding mountain roads. They would have to be turned into wide, less steep highways to allow the construction equipment and materials to get up there.

There's big money it it, so it is likely inevitable. Dammit. Rich
