Bear Mountain Windpark

Posted on 26 May 2011

Over the weekend, we visited Dawson Creek to see some of my family. While there, we took a hike out the Bear Mountain Windpark, a semi-controversial project that put a bunch of windmills up beside a hiking trail. While they are certainly quieter than a lot of other power projects, they have a kind of spooky feel to them. They tower over the trees, the blades move faster than you would think, and they sound like this.

It’s tough to get across the size, but that blimp-shaped part? That can fit a truck in it.

If you want a better idea of what it’s like to be there, here’s some video I took. Check the shadows in the first one:
