Turbines, Waterman, and Bikers

In my trips out to Hinckley and Waterman, I’ve seen the fields of turbines just to the north.  It’s a pretty large array, stretching for miles and miles.  I had to get up close to one, or at least sort of close.  It looks like they’re either owned by or on land owned by Monsanto, so they’re very much fenced off – as is nearly anything owned by Monsanto in the area.  It definitely creates an odd mood for an area that’s otherwise relaxing and serene.

Turning south, I headed into Waterman to walk around some more.

I like Waterman.  The town makes me curious to explore it more.  It almost seems like two separate towns.  The old town, and one new sprawling subdivision east of town, and they are quite separate from each other.
