Ferns

Yesterday, we went swimming in plants.  It all started off by scrambling about some 130 year old lava that looks like a completely different planet, trying to find any cracks where vegetation might have made a home.  We progressed to older flows, where lots of things were growing, but we still had to scramble up and down and up and down trying to count the plants – something only a crazy person or an ecologist would try to do.  But the best was definitely weed whacking through plants with our bodies, resting off of the ground, supported only by absolutely enormous ferns.
