  • These things are HUGE! Last year, I saw a single blade of one of the turbines being transported on the road. Being that close to just the blade made me realize how gigantic these things are and how tiny I am compared to them. With that said, there are hundreds of these in certain spots on the mountains. Quite surprising to see when you're not used to seeing them. If you're visiting, definitely snap a few pictures of the turbines!
  • Haven't seen that much windmills my whole life. Different sizes of windmills but very picturesque area during a drive.
  • I've came here for the wheather.
  • Cool tour - interesting
  • Desert City
