Century plant

Near the top of the volcano, we found a century plant which was just finishing its active season. The rough aha lava provided a very unfiendly growing environment.

It's very interesting how this plant can survive in such a unfriendly lava-derived earth.

A desolate looking landscape. Amazing any plant life survives and grows.

Other worldly kind of environment, I like the 'retired' agave plant.
