Other than the nice pic with the mountains in the background it looks like pretty unforgiving territory. And that one tree doesn't look like a cucumber at all.

Any Anne McCaffrey fans out there? The Dragon's Blood Tree is the closest tree I've seen to Pern's "Sky Broom" trees. I'm thinking of the cover of "The Renegades of Pern". But they were a lot taller--sort of like our Sequoias.

The cucumber tree
Looks like a Boojum!

The first one looks almost like a overgrown mushroom, they are all very neat. I would love to see them.

I'll bet we could get some great 2x4s from that cucumber tree. And the base of the desert rose would probably keep a fireplace burning all night.

Oh.. There's yet one more to add to my list of places to see before I'm too senile to appreciate it..

I love those mushroom-shaped trees. They look just like the scenery in my last LSD trip. If I'd only known of this place before, I could've saved thousands on drug purchases .....

Is that island technically downwind of Bikini Atoll? That could expain a lot.

Sorry, but couldn't find a recipe for those trees.

Well, the cucumber tree works well in a light vinagrette...

Actually, those trees are biologically related to cukes.

You're thinking of eggs.

okay, after the massive drinking party last night, and the hangover I've got this morning, y'all are making me nauseated... :P
