Power lines

Clearing

When I first examined the Google satellite map for the Passaic River Park area, I was struck by these random diagonal clearings in the woods that stretched for miles.

Diagonal clearing - do you see it?

It took me a little while to figure out that they’re clearings for power lines.

Probably obvious, but I’ve never really thought about what it takes to set up and maintain electricity networks.
