We hiked up Friday afternoon to the ridge through a quiet snowy woodland. On the saddle, no sign of activity and no one present on the developed side of the line. We removed snow from the tents as best we were able–some tents have sucumbed to the heavy snow’s weight- and re-set the tarps. The GMP lean-to shelter between the camp and their roadway is an imposing barrier just to the west, its size a perfect symbol for the project- large logs, big fire, bigger impact, and in your face. On top of the hill the Green Mountain Boys flag is flying proudly reminding us all to carry on the battle against oppressive process. As we went back down to the campsite, the GMP patrol appeared in a red pick-up. The truck went north, then south, and came back north again noticing us on the second pass. The driver got out and took our pictures as we were walking down out of the campsite but did not say anything.
The winter woods were beautiful, and we were blessed with a brilliant sunset as the afternoon ended. More reason to carry on helping people realize what is beinng sacrificed for this project.

Lessons in Legalized Greed by Old Crow
You claim to have the right to disparage my belief In constitutionally granted property rights.
A purchased judge declined to hear the claims for relief As trivial compared to the board seat in his sights; A kindred spirit, like you, governed by basest greed,
An intimate member of your vast corporate cult.
Our legal case is moving along with glacial speed.
While the moneyed interests get a speedy result.
No justice found in the current administration.
Festooned in an orgy of noble lies and deceit.
The lame governor’s lithe tongue promises castration.
Stammering that the ‘Great Project’ will soon be complete.
Dumbstruck, the great jurists watch the ebb and the flow.
As legal rights are lost in the filthy undertow.
