Look for windmills (you can’t miss them; some blades are more than 50 feet long!) and for signs on Interstate 10 at the San Gorgonio Pass, then hold onto your hats because it is very windy out here. There are more than 4,000 windmills “blowin’ in the wind,” generating pollution-free alter
native energy. Experts tell us they provide enough energy to light up all the homes in Palm Springs. There are three one-and-a-half-hour tours (the world’s first windmill farm tours). Guests ride in air-conditioned Hummer H2s—the luxury models— escorted by well-informed guides who enjoy their work and answering kids’ questions. This is a terrific and painless way to introduce children to an unusual energy source with enormous future potential.
