Quiver tree: Namibia,
The quiver tree is an aloe, a succulent growing in a desert. Indigenous to southern Africa, their branches are hollowed out and ostensibly used to make quivers for arrows. Hence the name. This one along with two companions stood in the middle of a very desolate landscape as we drove towards the coast.
