Changes on the North Dakota Prairie-October 21, 2017

Some things never change in North Dakota.  The wind blows almost every day and the expanse to the horizon is mostly unbroken.  Yet the remnants of another culture and another way of life remain on the prairie.

Although wind power has been on this landscape for well over a century, the new windmills dwarf their predecessors and strive to send electricity from their whirling vanes.

Farmsteads from the 1940s and 1950s now rest in silence as trees and prairie grass slowly reclaim them.  Less people inhabit the semi-arid lands as farms grow larger and folks move to cities.  Yet the products and timeless spirit of the wide open spaces still prevail.
