Interesting Aerials of San Antonio.

Looks to be taken from about the 1604 and Culebra area, I could be wrong. You can make out the Medical Center at the top left. The reason the pictures look so smoky is because of Mt. Helotes (the 80 foot pile of mulch that’s burning in Helotes).



The land at the lower left is what will eventually become Alamo Ranch Marketplace (infrastructure is already being built) and just behind that is the massive Alamo Ranch which has been underway for about a year, it will have over 15,000 homes.



E/NE SA near Converse.

It will get green in the spring folks. In another month or so. Very green if we keep getting rain.

Whenever I fly into the San Antonio airport, no matter from what direction (Houston, Dallas, Harlingen, El Paso)...those aerials are about all that's visible out the windows. Kind of nauseating.

And yeah, that's brown. Ha.
