NewMexico90 actually asked two questions.

His title asks if the Organ Mountains are the most beautiful in SO. NM.

In the opening post he asks if they are the most beautiful in NM.

Which is it?

IMHO, there is no such thing as a mountain that (usually) isn't beautiful??
I lived next to the 2,000 foot South Mountain in Central/Western Maryland, right next to the beautiful Appalachian Trail.
Compared to MOST of the majestic mountains here in New Mexico, South Mountain is a HILL.

The most beautiful mountains to me are the Florida Mountains because they are quintessential desert mountains, very pretty from I-10 near Deming. I see them and I think of a warm and lazy life of sunny solitude. I also love Ladron Peak, something that I couldn't take enough pictures of while driving east on US60 by Magdalena. While NM doesn't have the jagged peaks most associate with MOUNTAINS, it possesses mountains that look like God took the landscape and pinched it, like he was pinching a bedsheet and then let it drop into softer forms that fold across each other.

I've never met a New Mexico mountain range that I didn't like. My favorite: the Sangre de Cristo mountains.

I like all of them. I haven't seen the Organ Mtns in person, so I'll reserve judgement on them, although I like what I've seen. So far, it's a tie between the Sacramentos and the Sangres.

I'd say as dominant a part of the landscape as they are they rank with the Grand Tetons. Other mountains in the state, south and north, are very nice. I like Mt. Taylor, Sierra Blanca and Whitney is cool too but they don't stand out to me quiet like the Organs do. Something about the surrounding landscape (which are nice but take away from the visual impact of the mountains IMO). I found the Tetons struck the same chord in me as the Organs when I was in Jackson, the string of lakes in the foothills make them even better.

Scenic View, off I-10, or anywhere along the west escarpment is the best place to put it all in perspective to me.

I live in WY and I agree with you about the resemblance to the Tetons
