Hiking in Nuclear TerritoryIndian Point
This beautiful country surrounds Indian Point, Con Edison's contribution to National Security, a nuclear energy plant located less than 60 minutes from Manhattan in the luscious Hudson valley. You can hike along the River, climbing Anthony's Nose over the Bear Mountain bridge, winding your way through forest bridges, mountain laurel and that butt-building New York rock.As I was hiking through this territory Air Force jets whizzed past, almost brushing the trees. Ask yourselves, do we really need a nuclear power plant in the midst of this beauty? Aren't we asking for trouble?
