Rocky Mountain Yucca

Succulents and cactus are usually associated with deserts, but this particular yucca plant is growing at almost 8000 feet up in the Rocky Mountains. Some cactus also grow at high altitudes and in extreme temperatures. This is a testimony to the extent to which plants can adapt to various niches throughout the world. On the other hand, it is nice to see one of my familiar plants in an unfamiliar place.
