California wind farms

Everyone in San Francisco, I assume, is familiar with this giant field of windmills outside Livermore. It’s beautiful. I got there just a bit after sunset, and spent a couple hours driving around the winding backroads, stopping every few feet to watch and listen.

They’re quieter than I expected: even with this many surrounding you, it sounds like a clothes dryer running in the next room. The crickets are louder.
