On Mount Nebo in Jordan

28 09, 2007

What was seen at Mount Nebo, 10 kiliometers west of Madaba in Jordan, about 2700 feet above sea level. Mount Nebo was where God showed Moses a view of the Promised Land (Deuteronomy 34:1-7).

I remembered many of us were taking pictures of these special-looking trees.

Picture taken on: 29 November 2005

[Update These plants are called Agave Americana ‘Marginata’. Each thin stalk actually emerges from the center of a succulent base and it is part of the flowers which bloom on the branches right at the top.

Thanks so much Andrea from Hajos Cactus for providing this information!]
