Meeting Mt. Middlelick


Tonight, members of the Loudendale and Davis Creek community met at the Kanawha Trail Club which sits at the foot of what will be the KD#2 mine extension, or what we’ve begun calling Mt. Middlelick.  I wish I could fully convey just how beautiful the log clubhouse, wooden footbridge and campfire area are.  Or how my heart ached just thinking about how everything, just at the top of the ridge directly in front of me, will be gone.  Stripped.  No trees.  No topsoil.  Not even torn earth – torn rock.  How can that devastation possibly be so close and not destroy this green idyllic place?

The moon reminded me just how small, how insignificant I am.  Small and insignificant I may be, but I’m going to do all I can to save Mt. Middlelick.  It looks like more and more people are going to help.  I am hopeful.
