Whalesback view spoiled  

Credit:  Letters to the Editor | Bangor Daily News | August 9, 2020 | bangordailynews.com ~~

The view from the “Whalesback” on Route 9 in Aurora was one of the iconic vistas in eastern Maine, to the extent the Maine Department of Transportation even included a scenic turnout in their highway planning so people could stop and enjoy it. It is noted as a “Unique Natural Feature” in the Maine Atlas and Gazetteer.

What a bitter disappointment when a recent trip through the area revealed several large wind turbines dominating the skyline in the near distance, completely despoiling the once pastoral view. The industrial development of our wildlands continues its march eastward, threatening the existence of the last 100 miles or so of unspoiled land on the eastern seaboard.
