I recently enjoyed a field tour in the western Shenandoah Valley, in the George Washington National Forest, one of the largest intact ecosystems left in the eastern US. The tour was organized by the advocacy group Wild Virginia to introduce concerned citizens to the landowners whose lives and livelihoods stand squarely in the path of this monstrous industrial land grab being foisted upon us by the piratical profiteers of Dominion Resources, a multi-billion dollar extractive industry. I wrote a couple of short pieces on our moving and evocative experience here.
