Agave & Cactus

This unusual combination of color is an agave plant growing over two small red-needled barrel cactus on the sand near a Kumayaay village.

The Kumeyaay people roasted the agave stalks in pits for up to three days and then the stalks were opened to extract a mollasses flavored food which was eaten or dried for future use.
