Here is a sunset shot of downtown San Antonio. This is about 80% of where we walked and hung out when in the city. Most of the green trees you see are part of the River Walk which is the tourist hot-spot in town.
The Alamo is near the cube-looking statue on the right side of the photo. You can just barely see its dome. It was quite shocking to discover that they literally built the city around The Alamo. I always pictured it in a field somewhere near the edge of town not smack dab right in the middle.
