EUROPEAN SOJOURN: Blade in mist (Day 19)

Kodak Europe 240On our misty day cruising down the Lower Danube, Jerry took this shot of a lone and ghostly wind turbine on a cliff above us.

When we got home and mentioned it to friends from Arizona, they described a semi they had seen hauling one blade of a similar turbine from Arizona to California. “The truck was maximum length, with an extension. The base of the blade filled the truck–and the blade stuck out 20 feet beyond the end of it. It was marked ‘WIDE LOAD.’ Police cars were leading and following it, flashing their lights.”

How many truckloads must it have taken to set up this scene?
