Agave on Blackett's

Photos by Matt Ball 5/23/2013

View from end of Blackett's Ridge Trail

It's clear why these are called Golden-flowered Agave (Agave chrysantha)! They are also commonly known as century plants; but they don't live that long. After they bloom in all their glory, they die. (What a way to go.) You'll see more of these plants as you gain elevation; these photos were taken on the Blackett's Ridge trail.
