The Texas Water Safari bills itself as the ‘World’s Toughest Canoe Race’ and I can’t imagine a more difficult one. The race starts and the headwaters of the San Marcos River and ends 260 miles later in Seadrift, Texas. Continue reading
The ribbon has been cut and the stadium is ready for football. San Marcos High’s Stadium seats 8 thousand and since it’s going to be full of Ratter Fans on Friday I thought I’d give you a little peek at how the finished stadium looks from above.
October 2, 1835 the first shots of the Texas Revolution were fired less than 10 miles from this courthouse. The Battle of Gonzales was short and militarily insignificant but its political impact was massive. It seems to me that the Gonzales Flag is more popular today than ever. I can’t help but wonder how those Texian revolutionaries would fell about the flag’s modern day political uses but I digress… Continue reading

The grass certainly looks greener than the last time I flew over Rattler Stadium. It looks like they have some more work to do to finish it off. Frankly, I’m hoping for some more purple.
Friday August 29th was my first attempt at capturing Texas High School Football From Above. My flight was mostly for practice, a chance to see what the old Phantom would do. The first thing I noticed is that at Wimberley (and most high school stadiums) the sun sets behind the the home section. I guess my next test will have to be after sunset under the lights.

The new San Marcos High School football stadium is another site I’ve been planning to shoot From Above for a while now . . . since the bond passed really. These pictures were taken on August 20th, the first home game is scheduled for September 19th. They still have a lot of work to do but it’s starting to look like a place the Rattlers can call home.
