‘Somebody’s Up There Sittin’ in a Tree’ — A Look at the Ongoing Pipeline Protest on Peters Mountain

The Mountain Valley Pipeline will cross underneath the Appalachian National Scenic Trail near this spot. A short walk to either side of the ridge and one would see the pipeline’s survey markers, and on the West Virginia side, there are tree sitters. Photo by Nancy Andrews.
