Wednesday in Wyoming -- August 14, 2013

Wyoming is noted for its wind, and so it's not surprising to see wind farms like this one as you travel throughout the state.  What always amazes me about them is the size of the turbines.  Those are ordinary power lines in the foreground, giving you an idea of just how tall the turbines are.

While they're designed to handle even Wyoming's winds, one particularly strong storm resulted in one of the turbines collapsing when the center shaft bent over at a 90 degree angle.  Only in Wyoming, or at least I hope so.
