Solar System at Painted Hills

2011 August 12

Last weekend, my friends and I took a trip to Painted Hills in central Oregon. The hills are painted by layers of fossils corresponding to particular geologic eras. Or so the the story goes, at least. Looking at the hills in person, it felt more like we were on Mars.

The park ranger's house has a 7 kW solar system on its roof. It is the first such project for the National Park Service.

Here, I am with my canvassing colleagues, Masha Alekseeva and Eila Rinne.

The solar system was so big, the mountains didn't fit into the shot
