As we were traveling on Interstate 90 in Washington State heading west towards Snoqualmie Pass, this very large Semi tractor trailer passed us going east. On that trailer was a very big wind turbine blade.
The cars beside this trailer gives you more of a idea of just how big this blade was.
It wasn't until we were returning to Montana over Interstate 90 just before The Gorge above the Columbia River that I really began to understand just what this blade was all about.
On the hillside next to the Freeway was a vast area with many of these wind machines already working. If you look closely in the above photo you can see many of these giant "beasts" on the hill tops in the background.
Their size did look enormous but you really had nothing to compare them with to really understand the actual size of these costly machines.
That's when I captured this photo below that has a regular size pickup sitting beside one of the wind machines.
Our little Mistaya was such a wonderful traveler on this journey to Aberdeen. I will post some photos of her tomorrow so she can show you her side of the story.
