A new set of aerial photos posted at eldoradoflds.us shows a couple of new buildings at the Yearning for Zion Ranch in Texas.

They're placed at either end of the shining amphitheater under construction, and look to be sheathed in the same white limestone.

Each is rectangular, with a smaller rectangle attached to one side. Though they are dwarfed by the amphitheater itself, even the the smaller side of each new building looks to be three or four times taller than a pickup truck.

There's also a set of metal beams constructed at what would be the entrance to the semi-circular structure. The start of the roof?

One thing that doesn't seem to be growing, however, is the limestone water tower/statute? base.
