|Huge Forest of Giant Wind Turbines Near
Palm Springs In Southern California
Palm Springs is about 120 miles southeast of Los Angeles. In touring various points of interest in southeast
California in the last week of October 2006, when we were traveling on Interstate Highway 10 or on Highway
62 near Palm Springs, we were delightfully surprised to see a huge forest of modern gigantic wind turbines
spreading over very large areas at San Gorgonio Pass as shown on this web page.

It was an absolutely wonderful experience for me to see such huge array of towers of gigantic wind turbines
spreading over such big areas at San Gorgonio Pass to generate electric power from the wind, a sustainable
renewable energy source.
