This is the largest grouping of Windmills I have seen. It is quite the sight especially on a windy day. I wish Canada 🇨🇦 and the 🇺🇸USA would build more of these windmills farms so we can reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.

If you just want to see the Wind Farms, you can get off I-10 and drive the local roads among them. The farms are gated and fenced but you are relatively close to turbines. Getting out of the car is pretty easy since there is limited traffic on these back roads. We did a guided tour. The tours will not... More

As one drives up I-10, just past Palm Springs heading west, there comes into view the most amazing collection of wind generators that I have ever seen. There are large ones, small ones and some huge ones. Locals told us that this is basically a huge wind tunnel in this pass through the mountains and thus the ideal place for... More

Such an enormous collection of windmills. Some people think it's an eyesore but it is a small percentage of the land and produces so much electricity. It is just awesome to get so close to the windmills and see the size of the newer ones.

Drove by the massive wind turbine area several times. It is eerie to see so many of them. Why aren't there more of these energy producers in other areas of our country? Why do we keep drilling for oil and mining coal and creating global warming instead of investing in alternative energy like wind turbines and solar power?

Interesting to see the various age level of the windmills. Really is an eyesore - for such an otherwise interesting area......
