an old brick building with a large sign on it's side that says american hotel
now a really run down rooming house
an old brick building with a blue awning
the old west lives
an open field with hills in the distance
buffalo jump (and tourist attraction) - the natives used to chaise herds of bison off these cliffs
several wind turbines on the side of a dirt road
these are huge - notice the man sized door at the base of the nearest tower. The blades must be 150 feet long
a herd of cattle standing on top of a grass covered field next to a hill
these guys were not very happy with us
a herd of cattle standing on top of a grass covered field next to wind mills
Give me a home where the buffalo roam (in a feed lot) and the sky's are all windy all day
a lone white house sitting on top of a dry grass covered hill in the middle of nowhere
a few, a very few, people live here too
an open field with windmills in the distance and a fenced in area behind it
and more
several windmills in the distance with mountains in the background
and more
several windmills in the distance on a grassy hill
and there are a lot of them
a house with a wind turbine behind it in the middle of an open field,
This wind turbine (that's a high tech windmill) is 200 yards away from this house - it's huge!
an empty dirt road with wind turbines in the distance
the road to ... - it went on for 50 miles on the map
several windmills are seen in the distance behind a farm
In addition to oil there is a lot of wind on the prairie and a lot of huge windmills
an open field with mountains in the background and trees on the other side that is surrounded by grass
Just a gorgeous view.
