2017 Photos of the Year
This year American Border Patrol picked two images as 2017 Photos of the Year. Both deal with the same subject --- Integrated Fixed Towers --- and both involve American Border Patrol's HERMES drone.
Both Integrated Fixed Towers are in and near the Coronado National Forest in Arizona.
It has has been said: "A picture is worth a thousand words."
We added a few words to make the pictures worth even more.
