Funeral Procession for the Lowell Mountains, Tuesday, August 7

An obituary:
In loving memory of The Lowell Mountains. Born 250 million years ago. Died unpeacefully from multiple explosions and mountain top removal for industrial wind farms. The Lowell mountains provided a fertile habitat to many species including bear, moose, deer, catamount, coyote and eagles. The pristine ecosystem of the Lowell Mountains were the source for some of the worlds cleanest water as well as being the headwaters for springs and rivers throughout the region. In addition several generations of Vermont farmers settled in the basin of these mountains along the Bailey Hazen Road built during the revolutionary war to access Canada.

Please come and join in a funeral procession up to the top of the Lowell Mountains on Aug. 7th @ 9:00am. Wear black and bring flowers or whatever else you feel is appropriate for a funeral. The hike up the mountain is approximately one mile on steep, often muddy terrain.

Directions: Take Route 14 to Albany. Turn onto New St. follow uphill (New St. will become Larabee Hill Road) to the Bailey Hazen Road on the right – follow to the end of the road.
