Hi Carl ...... lots of the maps seem to be pretty random and cannot be relied on.
This is probably the balloon facility launch site located near Ft Sumner, New Mexico, which is on the Llano Estacado, very flat.
Fairly certain that this is NOT Palestine, Texas. The map shows it to be in Kansas. While not exactly mountainous, the facility in Palestine, TX, is surrounded by rolling, wooded hills. Futhermore, this shows considerable collection of snow today, which, while flurries are expected, Palestine has absolutely no snow accumulation at this time. I think this is a facility in Kansas, which may be linked to the Palestine baloon lab, is in some other locaiton.
LOL! I know I moan about the hills in Devon but I prefer them to such flat land.
Yup ... everything's bigger in Texas ... except the mountains. ;D
Such flat countryside.
