Date: 2019.08.29
Vantage Point: Amtrak

Caption: Florida Peak from the North

PhotoDescr: Riding Amtrak through southern New Mexico a mountain came into view higher and more rugged than other hills and mesas on the high plateau. Back at home it took me some time to find it on the map. It helped that I remembered we passed through the small town of Deming soon after I took the photo.

In the foreground the rail line paralelles I10. The mesa at left is Little Florida Mountains and the rugged rocks at right are Dragon Ridge. Below Little Florida Mountains lies Rock Hound State Park and at the foot of Florida Peak is Spring Canyon State Park.
