I wish I’d taken a picture, but, well, I was too busy trying to keep two kids happy in the miniscule backseat of our rental car.
Because we passed a windmill farm between Mesa and Anaheim that was U G L Y.
Here is a picture.
Suddenly, all those news stories that talk about wind farms like they’re eyesores make sense.
Here, in Iowa, I think they’re beautiful. I love driving in NW Iowa and seeing the windmills. It’s very scenic, IMO.
But they’re surrounded by lush growth.
In CA, they’re surrounded by dirt. But I had a hard time imagining that valley as being anything but ugly even without the windmills.
