Hiking for the Cause
Opposition to the Northern Pass Project has inspired lawn signs, bumper stickers and even legislation. Avid hiker Larisa Dannis has taken her protest of the proposed 180 mile transmission line through New Hampshire’s North Country to the top.
The 24 year old is hiking New Hampshire’s four thousand foot summits this winter- all 48 of them. At the top of each mountain, she pauses to unfurl a bright orange banner expressing her opposition. She then has a companion snap a picture- sometimes with a fellow hiker she meets along the way. She’s been posting those pictures online, and says she is trying to tell fellow hikers about the Project and why she’s against it.
