Let's Go Exploring!

Google Earth is really too good to be true. For one thing, it lets us show you around our beloved area of the Rio Grande Valley. First, Flamingo Avenue...



Our university...



Our little bit of McAllen (yellow) and Edinburg (brown)...

Turf wars...



Hope you enjoyed this adventure, junior explorers!
