    I mentioned upthread was from a "Down-stater" who was interviewed at Gore Mountain ski center. He opposes the wind farm because he; "Comes up here to get away from civilization".

    He was interviewed on a ski mountain that has been half clear-cut to create the 50-plus trails, the multiple lodges and the lift/snow-making systems. Like he was concerned that the wind turbines would interfere with his view of the new high-speed condola.

    If it weren't so silly, it would be sad. Maybe it's both.

    Additionally, the towers could be viewed from several points within the Adirondack Park's Wilderness Areas, but as someone who spent three seasons as a Wilderness Ranger in one of them, I can tell you that once you are in the woods, the dense canopy pretty much precludes "scenic vistas". If you do manage to fine a scenic outlook on a distant mountain top, and you knew exactly where to look, you might be able to see the towers. Maybe.
