These are the Sandia Mountains, that lie to the east of Albuquerque. Did you know that "sandia" means "watermelon" in Spanish? And around sunset here, you can understand where these mountains got their name. If you're hiking around, you'll notice that a lot of the rocks have chips of pink granite, and when the sun hits them just right, the mountains look like they're glowing. I love watching the sunset down by the Rio Grande, especially in the fall, and seeing the contrast of the golden cottonwood trees against the backdrop of pink mountains!
