We had a great time out wandering around NY state. There really is a lot of beauty to be found throughout the state. We spent some time looking in the Adirondacks and and as we drove we saw some breathtaking scenery. We passed through several small towns, including Cooperstown, home of the Baseball Hall of Fame. We discovered that the town was actually named for the father of James Fennimore Cooper.
All in all, we enjoyed some of NY’s nice state parks. They provided some very nice campsites for our wandering little home on wheels!
But, all in all, it really is nice to be home in the Bristolwood once again. And Murphy? Well, he is just glad to be proven useful. He really is such a good-natured pup!
Well, I have decided to add some pics of the turbines we photographed and let them speak for themselves. We understand that Governor Pataki is pressing for more “green power”, IE, power from clean sources such as wind turbines. Many folks are opposed, because they feel that groupings of these (VERY large) structures becomes unsightly. To others, these stand as a symbol of American ingenuity and independence. I must admit, I was fascinated by the stands of these, feeling almost like a kid watching pinwheels spinning….
Ben is about 5 feet tall, so you can see this “tube” for a tower is BIG!
This is the junction where the “blades” fit in.
The backside of the “mill”, behind the blades. Kind of like a big room where work can be done in the event of a problem with the turbine.
Setting up a new turbine, using VERY large equipment!!!!
