We went to Los Azufres Park last week to see some of the geothermal wells and to hike. An inactive volcano heats underground springs so the geothermal wells are a little like geysers. Max has neuropathy and is mostly blind, so we carried him most of the hike, which contributed to feeling way out of shape in this high altitude! But we're motivated to keep moving and breathing because this hike was 1/8 of the way to a monarch home (San Andres, the mountain in the picture) and we hope to go back this winter and get there.
The geothermal wells produce 250 MW, which apparently is a lot (I still don't speak electricity). Not sure what the waste products are, other than noise, but there must be some.
