It's been a few days since we were in San Antonio and even longer since we had a decent internet to work with. Texas is very big, but there doesn't seem to be a lot to it. A lot of wide open spaces. I don't think they believe in global warming as none of the campgrounds have recycling bins.
San Antonio, however is an oasis in the midst of all this openness. We spent 2 1/2 days there with no presidents to visit and managed to keep busy.
San Antonio is famous for its river walk through the middle of downtown and for the Alamo, site of the famous battle that symbolizes Texas fight for independence from Mexico

The river walk actually is about 15 miles long. It goes along the San Antonio River from the center of downtown where bikes are not allowed to the furthermost of the missions. Our campground was situated right on a trailhead which made it easily accessible to ride our bikes on it. We rode to the mission conception. It was a lovely stretch of the river away from the urban setting.
