I was taking pictures and putting them on my facebook and telling everyone that the potato hills in the background were beautiful with all the trees green and someone asked me why they were called that and I couldn't tell them because I'm new here and I've heard the locals call them that...Can anyone tell me why they are called that?

From the web...

The name “Potato Hills” is derived from the Bigfork Chert ridges that weather unevenly because of intense natural fractures; and at the surface, these knobby, steep-sided hills resemble a potato patch.
