Behold the Mighty Wind Turbine Blade

Right off I-80, in the parking lot of a rest stop. Very easy to get to, and a neat thing to go see.

The entire rest stop is windmill-themed.

Behold the Mighty Wind Turbine Blade

This is the first time I have ever seen a wind turbine blade sticking out of the ground.

[David, 08/17/2013]

The modern equivalent of a giant arrow stuck in the ground. We'd be on guard for any signs of an incoming second blade.

Turbine Blade At Rest Stop

As you enter the wind farms of southwest Iowa, stop at the westbound I-80 rest stop (west of Casey) for an up close and personal look at a single turbine blade erected like a tower.
