West Texas Confidential

Alternative energy in West Texas oil country
(Click image to enlarge)

After visiting Glen Cove, we hit the road and headed for West Texas. Originally, we were going to hook up with one of my very favoritest photo bloggers ever--Debi Cates--but due to illness, we had to skip meeting Debi. Still, we drove through some interesting country. What struck us were two things: the oil fields and the windmill farms. Many West Texans seem to have a strong opinion about oil as an energy source and seem none too happy with current Obama Administration policies aimed at alternative energy sources. And yet, there are large wind farms in this part of the state, too. It's sort of like the dog who's growling at you while it wags its tail--you're not sure which end too believe!
