Palm Springs windmills

I was driving out by the windmills near Palm Springs on Monday afternoon.  Clouds were falling off the mountains and most of the windmills were turning.  There's also a solar farm out by Dillon Road, which I'd never seen before.  Another storm is moving in this afternoon, with snow forecast down to 3,000 feet, which means that Morongo Valley will get snow and my horses will, too.  I'm taking one of my cameras with me today so that I can take some photos this afternoon.

I now work in DeKalb, IL. While it is not as beautiful as Palm Springs, they do have windmills. I was out at a jobsite today and saw them spinning away. They are quite amazing!u

Hmmm, more windfarms. Wonder if this is a NewEra project too.
