More from this Series

Turning inland, the intrepid travelers begin a thorough investigation into the weird, wild plants of Baja California. They quickly encounter the mystical, mythical Boojum tree. One of the oddest plants imaginable, the Boojum tree is leafless for most of the year and looks like a bit like an upturned turnip. Along the continuing journey to the pacific side, the wonders of Baja unfold for the trained eye. For example, the minute, bonsai-like coastal Alkali Heath shrub that takes its character, and form, from the forceful pacific winds.
