Wild Horse Wind Farm

Last Sunday, we stopped by this really huge art installation on Whiskey Dick Mountain in eastern Kittitas County.

20 - Wild Horse Wind Farm

The giant towers had these huge three-pronged blades slowly rotating (although, truth be told, not all of them were spinning). The sign at the gate claimed they were farming the wind.

29 - Wild Horse Wind Farm North

It looked really expensive, but cool.

18 - Wild Horse Windmills Mt Rainier

There was a visitor center on the ridge. It mentioned that these towers generated some electricity, but it wasn't really all that much. Just 337 kW for the whole art installation at the time of our visit.

30 - Wind Turbine

Impressive structures, though.
