Poppy Fest

 VO 9736 1

Each spring in far west Texas, the desert landscape of the Franklin Mountains comes alive with a field of golden yellow Mexican poppies, and for the 12th year, El Paso will celebrate the occasion with a free festival at the El Paso Museum of Archaeology. During the festival, visitors are encouraged to explore the museum—which features 14,000 years of prehistory in El Paso, the greater Southwest, and northern Mexico—and hit the surrounding trails to take advantage of the natural beauty of the Franklin Mountains.
