Humanity is in a dark place
Standing upon the current metal and stone monument named Mount Baker Ridge Viewpoint, Gabriel Campanario missed a journalistic opportunity to ask what came before. [“Seattle Sketcher: Mount Baker viewpoint lets you find your place in the universe,” NW Saturday, June 22.]
More than a dozen trees were cut down and natural habitat was destroyed to afford that neighborhood their view. Sadly, installing manufactured steel, shipping basalt rock from Eastern Washington and beaming with pride for having removed natural obstacles for our enjoyment does define humanity’s place in the universe.
