This one of two generators and is about 20 feet long and 10 feet high. It sure is small compared to a single hydroelectric turbine and there is no obstruction in a river!
The greenhouse was my favorite part of the resort. Fresh tomatoes are a delicacy in Alaska, and the growers at Chena Hot Springs have taken full advantage of the naturally hot water to heat the greenhouses and produce a delicious array of warm weather veggies for the restaurant. The tomato plants produce for about 10 months. Heck, this year I'll be lucky if I get one red tomato!
Leafy greens were also in various stages of development in the greenhouse.
Outside there are a couple of gardens that produce cool weather veggies like broccoli, cabbage, carrots and swiss chard.
Herbs plus one moose!
Of course I have to show my pictures of Denali and Bear Glacier.
