If there is an area you want to see in El Paso, post your request here, maybe some of in El Paso can help you out, and grab you a preview of an area and post the pictures here for you..

I know when I am looking at moving I always want to see the area I am moving.. CityData has done a good job so far with images, but they cant have the whole area covered.

I also want to point out that the image of the lake and green grass on the data profile of El Paso TX is not El Paso TX. maybe want to remove that.

[SIZE=3]Hi - I am not sure if you can help me or not. I live in Houston and I am trying to find a scenic drive postcard. My husband proposed to me there and it is our 1 year anniversary and thought what a wonderful gift, if I could find something. I am looking for a postcard or picture of the view at night with all the lights. [/SIZE]
[SIZE=3][/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]I have searched online and have been unable to find anything. Do you have any suggestions. Our anniversary is Sept. 18[/SIZE]

This photo was probably shot from scenic drive at night:

I tried to post this website that has webcams posted all over El Paso and they change frequently about every half hour or so, when it gets windy the cameras freeze, if for some reason the link dont work go to Google Earth and beam yourselfs down to where Ranger Peak is, then bring up the website (webcams)and you'll see El Paso day or night and you can sometimes catch airplanes landing, yesterday there were two hawks or eagle flying on around Ranger Peak 4 webcam, I thought they were Stealth Bombers there for a while, they were awfully big birds.

your gonna like what you see, click on the pictures to enlarge.

OK for some reason it wont let me post the link but you can still access the site posted above and when you bring up the site on the lefthand side of your screen click webcam.

since it is an air quality observation and a grant given by the EPA who knows how long it's going to last but I've been enjoying these views for the past year, and it helps ease the homesickness.

Thanks 6 FOOT 3, you know last Saturday you could actually see the tailgating over at UTEP, but now I think the clouds are moving in probably because of those two hurricanes looks like alot of moister headed towards El Paso, oh and wait to see the sun sets, night pictures are not that great, I dont think they have the right speed on those cameras to make good night pictures.
