in the Rio Grande Valley.
|Many of the churches and buildings make you feel as if you are in Mexico.|
|There are always flowers blooming in the Rio Grande Valley.|
Even the Cactus have beautiful flowers.
|Can you see the mountains in the background? I didn't think so. It is very flat although|
it is called the Rio Grande Valley. In this photograph, Mexico is just about a mile away.
|Sorghum is a major crop in Southern Texas. These fields are about two weeks away from harvest.|
|That is an oil well in the middle of this Sorghum field.|
|Cotton is also a big crop in Texas. Here the cotton balls are beginning to form.|
|Ready for harvest.|
|The cotton is harvested and put in a big bale and then hauled by truck to the cotton gin.|
|A big bale of cotton.|
|Sugar cane is another crop grown in the Rio Grande Valley.|
|We got up close and personal with this Texas Longhorn. He wasn't quite sure about us and we didn't know if he would charge or pose. Luckily he posed!|
