Power | Vantage, WA | November 2019

Wires, wires everywhere. I’m not complaining, just envious. Linemen who installed and now maintain high-tension cables for our region’s hydro, wind and solar projects experience the grandest views imaginable. The lines often stretch summit-to-summit across spectacular vistas. Of course, those power-line people risk butt and brain to climb there, with no comfy visitor center at the top. Me? I keep my brain just above ground level and frequently recite this reminder: Power lines don’t mar the landscape; they are the landscape.
