Despite the sizzling heat (103 degrees today and hotter tomorrow!!), I had a great day filled with all kinds of adventures. After viewing a few more barn quilt blocks, I toured the Wild Horse Wind Facility, where I got up close and personal with 149 gigantic wind turbines that can generate up to 273 megawatts of electricity, enough to serve more than 80,000 homes. Great tour with killer views of Mt. Rainier (pictured), Goat Rocks, Mt. Adams & Mt. Hood. Incredible.
Spent some time at the Central Regional Branch of the State Archives where we got a personal tour of the facility. After a quick WSGS Board Meeting, it was off to Kittitas County Genealogical Society’s open house at their wonderful library. Closed the day at the computer lab test driving genealogical software programs, including Roots Magic, Legacy, and Family Tree Maker.
A full day getting revved up for tomorrow’s main event: WSGS Conference featuring David Rencher.
