Guy wire should have been marked
I would like to inform you that the guy wire you refer to as near a “utility pole” (April 18) stretches approximately 100 feet away from the pole sloping into a hill at an angle of 30 degrees. Kenneth hit this wire about 90 feet away from the pole.
There was no marker or protective cover warning snowmobilers of this guy wire and many people in this town have hit this wire.
They were lucky. Kenneth was not.
This trail is the main trail for the north side of the town for travel from Arctic College (North 40) to Apex, and this guy wire should have been better marked.
