Poppies Around Rodeo, New Mexico's most Western Town

Strong winter rains are a sure sign of a beautiful spring crop of wildflowers in the San Simon Valley.  The poppies have been blooming for several weeks, a slowly marching carpet of yellow and orange from south to north down the valley.  Their arrival in Rodeo was noted by several other bloggers (here and here) and just north of Rodeo at the Painted Pony Resort the landscape on the east side of the San Simon River (where water is an option) is now carpeted with poppies in bloom.

Below is an interactive panorama created in Microsoft's Photosynth.  Multiple images are stitched into one large panorama which can be navigated and zoomed, which creates a "big picture" view of the landscape.
