    Oregon Trail threatened

    The Oregon Trail lies in the corridor of the greatest potential for wind
    energy in Oregon. One project has already been constructed on a historic route of the Oregon Trail in Oregon. Two more projects are under construction this summer on the main branch of the Oregon Trail in Oregon. Another project is nearing its final approval and construction is expected to begin next year. More projects are planned but are not yet in the permit process.

    Senate Bill 823 in the Oregon Legislature seeks to require consideration of the known historic route of the Oregon Trail in Oregon and would require a review by the State Historic Preservation Office before a permit could be granted for development.

    Two photos are attached. The Barlow-Klondike photo is on the branch of the Oregon Trail that turned southwest to the Barlow Road extension of the Oregon Trail across Barlow Pass on the south flank of Mount Hood. Mount Hood is the mountain behind the windmills. The Oregon Trail – Biglow photo is a scenic location on the main branch of the Oregon Trail north of the Barlow-Klondike site. This scenic view was recorded by multiple emigrants in their diaries as they plodded along. It will be filled with windmills the summer of 2007.
