San Antonio Missions Tour - 2023


On a very hot day, with temps approaching 100 C, the San Antonio Ford Model T club toured San Antonio's historic missions. Seven vehicles took part. From the start point at Stinson airport, we visited Mission Espada, Mission San Juan, the Hot Wells spa ruins, Mission Mission Concepcion and Mission San Jose before going to lunch at the Trailblazer Cafe at Stinson Airport, where we got to park on the flight lone and get a few snaps with an antique biplane aircraft. A fine day indeed.

The club was honored to be accompanied by Lee Besing who owns and operates "Yellow Rose Drones." Several of the images - all identified as such - were made by Lee. You will also find links to a couple of videos he made of the day, plus a link to his web site. His fees are very reasonable and, as you can see, the results are excellent.
