Pre-historic bamboo

When a place never has freezes, things grow beyond belief.

We saw a gigantic bamboo grove where the stalks (trunks?) were about 10-14" in diameter. The grove was about 60 feet high. The cover was so dense overhead that my camera's flash had to kick in, even though it was in the middle of the day.

Jay's shield is one of the peelings of the "bark."

Drilling for water with hand bores, walking with kids in bamboo forests - what a fun and rewarding adventure! Well, I know there's work involved, but that kid is going to have some wonderful memories.

Paul, you and Heather have some of the cutest little moppets I've seen anywhere.
