Viewing the wind turbines.

Wind Farm Lookout Platform

There is a lookout to see 240 wind turbines. They sound like a jet coming in for a landing. There are information plaques around that explain the turbines in detail. The walkway to the platform demonstrates how large the turbines really are, and there is a telescopic viewer to see the turbines up close.
