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.
