Motel 6 Ellensburg
I hadn't booked ahead for overnight but there were lots of places to choose from on University Way.
Wild Horse Visitor Center
You can't miss the place. It sits atop a winding hill. The docents are super friendly and knowledgable. The center offers videos to watch, informative reader boards and gifty trinkets!
Yeah okay. I opted out of yet another T-shirt, but bought a solar powered turbine instead. Is photographing a souvenier T-shirt considered cheating? :)
This is one of my favorite pix! One can see by comparison how really big the turbine is next to my Honda Element.
Being a triple Air Sign (Aquarius sun, Aquarius rising, Libra moon) and being here witnessing what the power of WIND can do...just simply fits!
Base of a Blade
A close-up look at the part of a turbine blade that attaches to the housing. I stood next to it and had it not been gated, could have walked inside!
Relaxing & Hospitable Visit
I spent most of the day at Wild Horse and wanted to stay longer but was getting tired. The smoke from not-too-distant forest fires filled the air again.
Vintage Mobilgas Station
Saw this on my way out of town and had to photograph it. I value nostalgia and it was a cute eye-treat for the end of my trip.
