For a map of the Palominas School District, which entails a much larger area (192 square miles) for the three local schools, I am providing a link that will open the map on a new page.  The map file is rather large (about 160Kb), so it may take a minute or so to load, depending on your connection speed.  I made it as small as possible while still retaining detail.  You can load this school district map by clicking here.

For example, here is an 'unofficial', but pretty close, map of the Palominas Fire District
boundaries (the colored area), which defines our community borders.  At the bottom is
the U.S. - Mexico border. This area encompasses approximately 70 square miles, which
is equivalent to 44,800 acres! And gee, Jean & I own 1/5600 of this beautiful landscape!
