LETTERS / What a Sad Sight To See

Dear Editor,

When coming up from Florida for my 8 month stay we came up 321 through Blowing Rock. What a sad sight to see (I had tears in my eyes and though it was a sin) what has been done to all the beautiful trees and for what reason I ask? We (as you call us “half backs”) do not love the mountains because of the super highways but for the beauty of the trees and the slow pace of living. Why has the state decided to destroy this beautiful place? I do not understand why the citizens of Watauga/Avery county can not put a stop to this road destruction. When these counties start loosing tourist they will feel not only the pain from loosing their beautiful surroundings but also the economic pain. Please stop this destruction of God’s country. G.
