W is for Watermelon @AprilA2Z #AtoZChallenge

Sandia, in Spanish, translates to "watermelon". So, the pretty Sandia Mountains are really the Watermelon Mountains.

Why the odd name? 

Because, at sunset, the Sandias turn a lovely pink shade in the fading light. Sorry I don't have a picture of it (it only lasts a minute or two, and I'm often not near my phone), but here's a great shot of the mountains.

  1. I found you via the #AtoZChallenge and am charmed with this photo. I've been to Albuquerque and seen these mountains. Thought the same thing that you did about the word sandia. Thanks for the memory of a great vacay.

  2. I didn't know that about the Sandia Mountains! That would be neat to see with them turning that color!

    1. It is very pretty, but for some reason I've never gotten a shot of them.

  3. Breathtaking view. And I can just imagine the pink hue in the fading light.
