irrigation missionespada texas


I am back from my trip to San Antonio. My second favorite place (First of course is Hawaii) I took 265 pictures.
Mission Trail.
Fourth stop. Mission Espada.
This is Espada Aqueduct.
Each mission had its own irrigation system. This is the only one that they have maintained.
Duncan asked to see a picture of this in the spring. Here is the link.

That's an old aquaduct. Like to see it in the spring.

I'm really enjoying your pictures. In a way, you're like me. I love to go out and shoot pictures of history, even if it's only local. These remind me of the El Camino Real (the "King's" highway), which runs from Mexico up to the Pacific Northwest. It's the road which connects all the California Missions.

Duncan - Thank you so much for all your comments. I added a link to my spring picture. I told this was my second favorite.
