We have been fascinated with the wind mills since the first time we saw them back in January so when my friend Michele told me about a field trip she was setting up there I jumped on the opportunity to go and learn more about them. (A special thank you to Michele for many of the pictures below. My camera's battery was dead so I only had cell phone pictures from the day.)
We learned that there are 195 of the wind turbines scattered over Tug Hill. They are 260 feet tall. Each one can produce enough power for 560 homes.
