Past the shortwave radio antennas of World Harvest Radio International, parabolic antenna of the Universal Space Network of the Swedish Space Corporation, small cottages and the Hawaiian savannahs, lie the Kamaoa and Pakini Nui wind farms.
The old windmills have rusted and broken and create more nesting sites for birds than power from the force of the tropical winds.
The scene is eerie, chilling, a snapshot from a post-apocalyptic dimension.
The abandoned blades still creak and moan in the ocean breezes, and the barbed wire warns passers-by in no uncertain terms to stay out.
That must have been some kind of joy ride.
The car, red iron crust flaking away at the edges and around the bullet holes that littered the metal frame, lay half buried in a mound of rusty earth and entangled sagebrush.
The trunk had long-since eroded away, leaving the gaping mouth of the car and its innards beyond laying slack.
Abandoned. Lost. Forgotten.
How it got almost half a mile from the road, up a narrow, slick rock canyon several miles outside of Lander, Wyoming, we had no idea.
Of course, we couldn’t resist the temptation of rusty metal injuries and tetanus…
… before moving on down the trail.
