The chapel of The Alamo Mission
The Long Barracks building contains history and artifacts.
The flags of six countries have flown over Texas; can you name them?
These enormous, brightly colored fish live in a ditch or culvert next to The Alamo Museum. They were freaky lookin'.
Inside the walls are the Alamo Gardens. I wish I could have adequately captured the enormous live oak trees on the grounds. One in particular is so huge that some its branches have become embedded in the ground and others must be supported to keep them from collapsing...magnificent.
