Flying Down to Rio (Grande Valley, that is)

Aviator C
While "Ol' Man Winter" has settled into much of the nation, the skies are still balmy across South Texas.  Frequent contributor, Kim Seale, sent us these photos from his recent business trips to Corpus Christi and Harlingen.  For those of you digging your cars out of snow this Holiday Season, we thought you might enjoy these tropical views.  The first photo is of the USS Lexington, which is now a museum in Corpus Christi.  The next shot is on the way to Harlingen, and the thin strip of land in the distance is Padre Island.  The final shot is sunset over the Rio Grande Valley.  Thanks, Kim!
