Day Two Hundred Eighty-Three

California - Wind Energy

Sent by: Green Tortuga
From: Seattle, Washington, USA
Notes: I believe that Green Tortuga, aka Ryan, sent this card to me while he was hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mexican border to the Canadian border in 2010.  Clearly he sent this while he was in California.  We have a couple of wind farms about fifty miles south of where I live in Indiana, consisting of several hundred of these wind turbines.  The caption on the back of this card says that there are about 15,000 (!) wind turbines in the Altamont, Tehachapi and San Gorgonio passes alone.  Ok, California, you win this one.
