Day 247: 4200m on the Cordillera Negra

We visited the adjacent Cordillera Negra for a day and saw some beautiful high grassland plants. Mom bought a flower guide and we had fun photographing and identifying what we saw. Below is an outrageous Puya Raimundi, a century plant known to flower once its lifetime. They can grow up to 80m supposedly when in bloom.
