If you look to the northwest, about 20 miles away, you can see Coal Creek Station. Also, sometimes you are able to see the Falkirk Mine's two draglines on the horizon, one to the left of the plant and one to the right.
The power plant to the left of Coal Creek Station is Basin Electric Power Cooperative's Leland Olds Station. You can often see the stack from this vantage point.
And the power plant directly to your left, to the southwest, is Minnkota Power Cooperative's Milton R. Young Station. Again, you can often see the stack from this vantage point.
Minnesota Power utilizes the electricity from the wind turbines that you see to the west.
In the distance, between the bus and the horizon to the west, is the Missouri River Valley. We will get close to the river in about 10 miles.
