Wind Power in Western Ohio

Just a short  drive East of Fort Wayne there as a seen that looks like something you might have seen out West a few years ago.  Along highway 30 East of New Haven there is a wind farm in place.  There are hundreds of these giant windmills silently turning to generate power.  I took these photographs one afternoon on my way home from Decatur.   My kids and I noticed them on our family vacation back in June to Deshler Ohio.  I had seen the giant blades on flat bed trucks going down 469, but didn't know exactly what it was I was looking at.  It is possible on a clear day to see these from the intersection of Highway 30 and 469 as you drive on 469.   The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette had an article on these that can be seen by clicking here. I personally don't like these giant machines because the block out the natural beauty of the land.  One of my favorite parts of going out rail fanning is being out in the country where I can enjoy nature.
