While out geocaching with my sister Deb last week we spotted these beautiful Lilac trees. We followed the coordinates to locate the geocache but it had been removed. In the downtown area of West Plains. Mo there were several of these bright pink lilac trees.
We had to have a selfie along with one of them.
I love their splendid color!! Even with all the midwest heat they are thriving.
Traveling across the Kansas plains you see plenty Y's in the form of Wind turbines. There are more than 52,000 of them across 41 states.
Kansas ranks 5th in wind production alongside also being known as the Wheat State and Sunflower State.
I caught these from our car, Ynot take some shots!!!
The biggest wind project was completed in 2017 outside Dodge City Kansas. It has 122 turbines. To give you an idea if you haven't seen them in person, the blades are 173 feet long and the towers are 262 feet high.
I really enjoy seeing the size difference up against the farm machinery.
