I didn't take this photo, as you no doubt guessed, but it's the only one I've found that even begins to give an idea of the size of the wind farms I saw on my trip. They are HUGE "farms," jaw-droppingly huge, covering many, many acres. One set of them on I-70 in western Kansas just goes on and on over the next hill and then the next one, and then when you think you've come to the end of them, there are more. I think they're beautiful in their own way. Today they were all completely still. I wish I'd seen them on the day last week when I was in 50 mph gusts. It might have been a little unnerving!
