A bromeliad grows on a limb on an overgrown trail100 viewsWe set out on this side trail we were warned not to take because it led directly into a grove of deadly manchineel trees. As the brush grew thicker, we realized that we wouldn't know a manchineel if we walked right into it, but by then it would be too late. Thus, we aborted the quest for the deadly manchineels (the Spanish called them manzanillas de la muerta -- little apples of death).
