Buffalo Mountain New River Watershed
Friday we flew around the ash spill--but went to monitor the strip mines UMD monitors and get fresh high res pics. On the way to Claiborne County from the Kingston community airport we went across buffalo mountain where the windmills are.
Please forgive the bouncy nature of this footage--the reason the turbines were turning so energetically was because of wind = turbulance. But I thought it might be unique and that in the midst of the cost of the 19th century technology of coal its important to see what could be the more elegant less destructive future.
