Flat as can be

The lower Rio Grande Valley is flat. We really don't have any significant hills or elevated areas. The hills don't start until you go towards Rio Grande City. From there, on the Mexican side, you can see the Sierra Madre on a clear day. This can be problematic for some things like mountain biking, rock climbing, and soap box derbies. From the expressway in McAllen, you can triangulate your location relative to the city by using the Bentsen Tower, Neuhaus Tower, and the Texas State Bank building, the 3 tallest buildings for miles and miles. So, to summarize, the RGV is flat.
