Since the "shack" on top of Mt. Alamo has been discussed recently, here is my view on it.

While going through the 1st trailer, I noticed a small red blemish in the hiker scene.  Aqua circle.
I have increased the colour saturation & enhanced the image a bit.  It could be the lower relay station for a cable car system or an actual cable car itself.
The pink square is definitely a man made structure.  Maybe it's the middle relay station.
The green circle is obviously the "shack" & some sort of metal support structure.

It looks like the bottom of the cable car system is located somewhere near or behind the retro rocket town.

Just my theory, but what do you guys think?

mate, you might be right. maybe the biggest mistery of this map is solved, right there.

Yeah but there are no cables to be seen and there are no pylons in between the suggested stations.

I don't think it's due to rendering distance, in IV the cables can be seen from quite far away.

There are a few good theories on this page alone.
They all seem plausible but I guess we wont find out until Sept 17th.
One of the first things I'll be doing when I get the game is go to these locations to see for myself.

A zip line from that height? Aww yiss. icon14.gif

I still think the hut is a base with a mine under it going into the mountain, just a hunch. the other scaffold like structure could just be a drill.... just my opinion, can't wait to find out for real though!

In the background of trevor there seems to be a cable lift. also look at the cables in the air.

In that case it would really make sense that the Military Base is a Naval Base (looking at the marines sign on the helicopter and the Base: Naval Base Ventura Country)

That looks like a helicopter.
Looks like the one in this picture. They both have those rounded cylinder things sticking out of them.

I do think there will be cable cars though. Thats most likely how the parachuting guy in the gameplay video got to the top of the mountain where the shed is.

That's a good size bridge. Could take us awhile to get across that thing.

Something makes me doubt that a little. The real-life road bridge you've picked out has a different underside to that of the bridge in V.

I have searched for this bridge as well, but have found no good match yet. Most of the ones I have found in similar locations do not have the arched construction on the underside of each span. I couldn't find any good sideviews of the one you posted though.
R* have been pretty liberal with other bridges in the game, for example the stoney creek bridge which is located in canada, so the inspiration for the bridge could also be taken from somewhere outside california.

I bet it's the quarry. Looks like a quarry, you can't see down it, but it "looks" like you could.

I think those are the same choppers in the other pic above, and those cylinders are winches for lowering each other down.

At first glance, the bridge reminded me of Dumbarton Bridge.

There's still quite a lot of the east and west coast that we haven't seen yet, and there's still space where one could be to the west of the Route 68 area or even the eastern part of the desert. Still a lot we haven't clearly seen so I still think there's a decent chance for seeing one out there.
