Last weekend, twenty students and faculty from Towson University visited Climate Ground Zero in Rock Creek, West Virginia to see exactly where their electricity comes from.
On a blustery April Saturday, two vans packed with students who study Anthropology, Geography and Environmental Studies saw EXACTLY where they get their electricity from: Kayford Mountain.
We were there to document their trip, from homemade biscuits and sausage gravy for breakfast, to a harrowing ride up Kayford, for those not used to Appalachian Mountain roads, a warm bowl of chili, campfires and cook-outs -- We made a bond and hope to see TSU students again this Fall.
