We left Altoona under a gray sky, ideal for driving as all of the bad weather from last evening's storm was far away. While some folks might become bored with the seemingly landscape of endless field of corn, we ever tire of the quilt-like patchwork of fields
Based on the winds we've encountered … and which continued today …
However, close to the Nebraska state line, we drove through two wind farms whose turbines often ran from horizon to horizon.
Below is the vane from a typical wind turbine at a rest area along I-80. You can get a sense of just how long they are by the way it dwarfs the semis.
Other interesting sights included:
A sculpture on the Nebraska RIver bridge
U.S. Air Force jet
Decorative roadway sound barriers
The Holy Family Shrine
Adair Iowa's community water tower
The Middle River Buck Blinds … just hoping all guns are pointed south (away from the highway)
