Stop the Northern Pass

To the Editor: I write this as a concerned, lifelong inhabitant of this great state of New Hampshire. We have been vacationing in the beautiful Lakes Region every summer since 1991. Before that, I spent many a weekend in our beautiful White Mountains, camping with family, youth group events, and many day trips as well.
The majesty of our mountains, lakes and vistas are second to none. How proud I was when we were able to finally take all five children on the Mt. Washington Auto Road for the first time, taking them to the top of Cannon Mountain in the summer on the aerial ride, to see the bears at Clark’s Trading Post, Storyland, the Kancamagus Highway, Lost River, Polar Caves, and on and on I could go.
Now imagine if during what should be the beautiful ride, we arrive at our destinations to find towers, most taller than the trees themselves. To make matters worse, when destruction to parts of our beautiful northern lands is complete, we would all need to be OK with the fact that our own state will see but a fraction of the energy produced. How is that even close to fair?
I urge citizens of New Hampshire, please do your research in this very important matter, one that will surely affect future generations to come.
Is this really the legacy we want to leave, destruction of our currently protected White Mountain region?
