Afternoon Clouds over the Sandia Mountains 0408

This post is coming to you 20 minutes after the last one because it shows the clouds I saw over the Sandia Mountains 20 minutes later than the ones in the previous post.

Sandia Mountains in the afternoon

Afternoon Clouds over the Sandia Mountains 0405

Each of the three mornings that we spent in Albuquerque dawned with the clear sky that people strongly associate with the Southwest, but each afternoon saw a buildup of impressive cumulus clouds over the Sandia Mountains to the east of the city. Especially after yesterday’s post about sand sagebrush you might think the name of those mountains has something to do with sand or sandy, but that’s not the case: sandía is the Spanish word for watermelon.
