California Windmills


It's hard to appreciate the size of today's giant wind turbines.  These modern windmills stand over 100 m tall (300 ft.), allowing enormous blades to harvest energy from the moving air.  In this video, contributor and pilot Endless Aerial uses a drone to provide a marvelous close up look at a modern wind turbine farm in the Mojave desert in Southern California.  The mountain pass here, near Palm Springs, is one of the country's best windpower resources; the wind power installation you see here was one of the country's first wind farms.
