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.
