windpumps Power of the Wind Trail

A 600 mile tourist route from Oklahoma to Texas is being planned, to show tourists the many wind pumps that define the area. The route called the Power of the Wind Trail is the brainchild of officials in Lubbock (home of the American Wind Power Center), who have linked up with the other Texan cities of Plainview and Canyon, and the Oklahoman cities of Shattuck, Woodward, Elk City and Norman. The plan is to distribute up to 50,000 maps of the route, and to produce a CD and website to promote the trail. The CD will hold a spoken commentary, designed for in car listening, and should be ready for the end of May.

Update:[20/1/04] The website has gone live, using the name American Wind Power Trail.
