Stored up Google Sat images

(all via Google Sightseeing)
  • Forest fires (I think it's interesting that these were captured by satellite)
  • Trees, horizontally and vertically
  • Reliant Astrodome, Stadium, Arena, and Center
  • Stealth bomber and fighter
  • I couldn't resist this Correo de Toros in Tijuana. The Google Sightseeing post said the fence just to the north is the one between Mexico and the US. Crazy.
  • Carowinds (official site map - easiest to match up if you rotate the map in Acrobat): Looks like the park was empty in this shot, including no water in water attractions. From top left clockwise: the Thrill Zone (used to be the Hurler), Rip Roarin Rapids, Palladium, North Gate area, Wild Thornberrys River Adventure (Log Ride-type deal), Kid's Studio (amphitheater), Scooby-Doo Ghoster Coaster, Road Rally, Soundstage Picnic Shelter, South Gate, Top Gun (roller coaster) Action FX Theater, Thunder Road (roller coaster - heads due west), County Fair, Waterworks (waterpark, including wave pool), Carolina Boardwalk and Carolina Skytower dead center. One impression: too much branding. Why did I work all of that out? Just got interested I guess ;-)
