|Sunset over the Sheep Draw|
Last evening I ran into a man walking his dog on the beautiful Sheep Draw trail, beside which 12 horizontally drilled gas wells are planned. He said he'd just watched a scary movie on HBO and mentioned 'water catching on fire', so I asked "Gasland 2?" Yes, he said.
|The trail near Northridge HS, north of 4th Street.|
|South of the trail is Hunter's Cove subdivsion.|

|Visible from the trail, the separators and flares, fuming 24/7|
We in Greeley must help preserve that beautiful stretch of wetland and keep it from being ruined by the drilling of more wells, with additional separators, flares and oil or condensate tanks that give off toxic VOCs!
