Dolly Sods 3: Windmill View

Although we can probably all agree that it’s a grand idea to harness a pollution-free, renewable source of power such as wind, it’s unfortunate that the wind turbines themselves so often end up spoiling views in mountain areas where there’s enough wind to actually harness.

This seemingly endless line of wind turbines is situated just north of the Bear Rocks Preserve in Dolly Sods and stretches northeast into the distance along the Allegheny Front.  Evidence of the abundance of wind resources in this area can be seen in the one-sided pines situated in the foreground, made this way by the incessant wind from the west forcing all the branches to grow in an easterly direction.
