After witnessing the aftermath of progress, I walked down the hill and headed for home. Somewhere along the way, I met a woman who was walking along the same trail. She said, "Isn't it horrible what they're doing to that mountain?" We walked together and talked about the plants. There was some comfort in knowing that someone shared my distress.
In any case, I didn't want to end my blogging on a sad note. On the way home, I saw the sun shining through the green trees, and I was happy.
