Prineville, Oregon

Prineville is small town in Central Oregon about an hour northeast of Bend. Redmond, home of Lancair, is about 20 miles due west.
It used to home to Les Schwab Tires, but they moved their headquarters to Bend a few years ago. They still have a tire warehouse there. You can see it near the bottom left corner in the above image.
Facebook has a data center there now. They archive all the old cat pictures here. It's near the center top. Airport is to the west (left).

The gray eggcrate looking things on the gray pavement confused me until I zoomed in. They're solar panels.
Inside the data center. ars technica has an article about how they are saving power.
