Turn, Turn, Turn

I was hypnotized by the wind turbines of West Texas.

WHENEVER I’ VE SEEN wind turbines spinning in the hazy distance as I zip down the interstates in West Texas, I’ve tried to figure out if they’re waving hello or good-bye. I finally realized they were waving me over and took them up on the invitation. After all, how could I resist schmoozing with Texas’s hottest energy celebrities?

I was tempted at first by the American Wind Power Trail, a Texas-Oklahoma tourism project that details, via a map and CD, wind-related stops like the Alternative Energy Institute, outside Canyon, and the Aermotor Windmill factory, in San Angelo.
