American Wind Power Center

June 1, 2017

Today was a travel day as I drove over 200 miles from Carlsbad, New Mexico northeast to Lubbock, Texas.  Lubbock was chosen as a one-night stopping point because I had some chores to do once I got there (having the tires on the car rotated, doing laundry, etc.) and I was going to have a much longer drive the following day as I moved on to Oklahoma City so I wanted to rest up a bit.

I did find something fun to do while I was in town.  I visited this museum, the largest one in the world dedicated to windmills.  This beautiful facility has over 160 windmills, 60 outdoors and the remainder inside a new building.
