Out here in southeast Colorado, we have an exceptionally generous supply of wind. These four wind generators were completed in 2004. There's a really big array south of Lamar, and a new group being built in neighboring Bent County. But these are close enough to see from town, so we went out to have a look one afternoon.|
Three of the four windmills.

Odd vantage point shot 2. That control box area is at least the size of a minivan!
Later on that summer, they brought a spare vane into town, and it has been installed on the lawn of the Visitors Center, to encourage tourists to stop and ask curious questions.
