Thus, the Name.

Apparently, there's a side to the Florida (pronounced Flor-ee-dah) Mountains we haven't seen yet. Not sure when we'll see it, but the mountains have been known to occasionally sprout vast quantities of Mexican Poppies.
The person we talked to today thinks this has happened maybe 3 times in the last 15 years. Since there was a lot of rain in last Summer's monsoon, we may have a chance to see it this Spring. Here's hoping. I'd like to get my own pictures of this event.
By the way, "Florida" is Spanish for "flower".
