Hi all:
Here are some photos of a last weekend trip to La Huasteca Canyon in Santa Catarina, West of Monterrey, Nuevo Len, Mxico.
Enjoy it.

Agave lechuguilla cultivar Charmed Cobra (Its a joke).

Agave victoria-reginae grows in the canyon walls, but some specimens live in the floor, where they are exposed to water flood.

It is good to have the opportunity, to see them growing in its natural habitat. Any rare or new discovery??

It's nice to see the habitat of a favorite Agave, victoria regina. And the locale has so much green.

Many thanks for the post.

What an amazing area! Just gorgeous! Thanks for that small "trip to Mexico"! I haven't been to that area of Mexico yet, but would love to go!

I enjoy those habitat type pics, since I live almost a world away the chance of seeing these plants in their natural setting is fairly remote, so thanks for sharing Manuel.
