We made it.

Well we made it! I'm at my sisters house in California. I was struck driving in at how dry it is. I grew up here, but I never really got that it was essentially a desert. I said before that I knew a good idea would come to me while I was driving across the west, and low and behold when you keep your eyes open and give life the reigns it will give you treasure. We were just inside CA and decided to get off the highway and take a detour to a ghost town that was just off the highway. The ghost town didn't "Pan out" but when we got off the highway I saw a sign for a solar plant. I started getting all excited (much to the chagrin of my kids, who by now have begun the "are we there yet?" routine.) So anyway, since I'm buying the gas, we go to the solar plant. I couldn't get in, but I did get some great pictures of the solar collectors. That will be detailed in a post this week so I can give you the pics at the same time.

Well, We're taking the kids to a new skate park now, and I'm gonna enjoy fathers day. This will be the first time in oh, 20 years probably that I will be with my Dad for it. Happy Fathers Dad! I love you!

Talk to you later.

Ouch. Driving across the desert just when the summer heat hits but before the monsoon rains cool it off a little. Yep, no way to not see it's a desert now. Don't the green lawns drive you batty?!

Enjoy your visit. Looking forward to pics of the solar plant.

I loved the sort of crazed-lightbulb shape of the wind turbines in the Central Valley. Also the sheep grazing under them. Sheep! in the desert! Eating irrigated hay! It looked awesome though, totally futuristic.

What did the solar plant look like? I love the tall silvery turbines of the wind farms in northern Iowa.
