Windmills are an ubiquitous sight in the area surrounding Palm Springs



Try and Catch the Wind

You simply can't avoid them — those sleek and towering beacons stretched along Interstate 10 rotating at a rapid and steady speed. Yes, the modern-day windmills seem to be everywhere, helping to generate one and a half percent of California's electricity. There are 3,500-plus windmills in place, creating enough energy to power nearly 200,000 homes. Bring a camera, hang on to your hats, and enjoy a guided (albeit windy) tour of these manmade marvels.
