Getting out of LA and Orange County suburbia can be a real challenge. Traffic is always heavy, and if there's an accident or road construction, it can really get ugly! So I always breathe easier when I get my first glimpse of the wind generators when heading east on the 10 freeway. It's a sure sign that I've officially left suburbia behind!
The wind is always blowing in this part of the desert. Notice how the creosote bush in the photo above is leaning hard to the left? The wind gets funneled between the San Gorgonio mountains to the north and San Jacinto mountains to the south (see photo above), creating a wind tunnel.
Do you have any wind generators in your area? Thanks for stopping by! Linking with Skywatch Friday.
