TWIG's Scoping Report from Mount Lafayette

Scoping comment: "We respectfully request that the DOE summit Mount Lafayette and hike the Franconia loop in order to understand what the towers will look like from the most popular trail in the White Mountains."

TWIG's Trip Report

Hello Comrades,
Today, four of us from 'TWIG' and our malamute snowshoed one of the most
popular trails in the White Mountains, the Bridle Path trail on Mt. Lafayette.
The weather was pretty darn cold and windy, the camera froze after a few shots.
We can testify that if the monster scheme went through, the towers would be seen  
from this majestic trail immediately above treeline. The entire Franconia Ridge trail
including Lafayette, Lincoln, Little Haystack, Liberty & Flume would be subject to
the despicable 'things'.
Also affected would be Cannon Mt., the Cannon Balls, Fishin' Jimmy Trail,
North & South Kinsman peaks and another very popular climb, Mt. Moosilauke.
Attached is a photo from today.
We are determined to be NHIMBY's: New Hampshire Is My Backyard!!!!

Chena raring to go!
