Moosehead Lake is simply astounding, truly a natural treasure. The iconic Mt. Kineo rises dramatically from the vast lake. The view from the top encompasses the blue water surrounded by verdant forest and the ancient Appalachian Mountains. Enjoy the vistas in this video, then envision the lake encircled with 50 story wind turbines on every available ridge. Please speak out against the destruction of this unique region that deserves national park status, not industrial wasteland status!
Another source states that Kineo is rhyolite rock, derived from Volcanic activity. Thus this area's mountains could be the ancient rim of one of Maine's largest Caldera, a feature usually formed by the collapse of land, following a volcanic eruption. Moosehead Lake having formed as a result of the collapse. Worthy of a Historic significance? Possibly an answer to the prevention of over development?
Moosehead - Truly Majestic - It is such a crime to even think of a turbine nearby!!
a" death by a thousand turbines "
. ignominy of Angus King , John Baldacci, Kurt Adams , Al Gore , et all .
Kineo, is (other than fractures from weathering) a single Rock. More (about 2/3) of it is below the surface than above. It is the largest piece of Hornblend stone on Earth. Fragments of this stone were used as arrowheads due to the sharpness and was traded as a commodity to regions west of the Mississippi into the Plains states. The Kineo House / Resort, now gone, has a unique history of it's own.
I believe Luke Muzzey of Plum Creek is one of the promoters of development in the area. Or was. He is now busy trying to do Plum Creek's deceptive bidding in Somerset county.
Moosehead, one of the largest natural lakes east of the Mississippi, has it's own tide of 4 inches. The mountains that surround it suggest that they may be the remains of a rim of a long ago massive volcano or meteor strike. It has been known to have had whirlpool vortexes as openings below drained water into the cavities.
I climbed it about 15 years ago. It was spectacular! I can only imagine what 500 foot spinning blades and flashing lights would do to it. Criminal.
