    Typical asian banana size that. We have 2-3 of those trees in our garden in Thailand...

    Yup, they're real. Some very different fruits here. I wonder how people realised they could be eaten sometimes. Did we just watch monkeys, or were we adventurous?

    Adventurous apparently...


    Terence McKenna has a very interesting theory on that specific subject and more on a book called :
    "Food of the Gods".

    Its a varied book on lots of things including, how homo sapiens came to choose food , how the process of selection must have been very tricky but also very rewarding at times.

    Language is thought to derive from that process, because inexplicably, our brains seem to have grown exponentially in a very short period of time ...
    I won't give too much away, it's a great book.

    As for the banana...

    Anyone know what plant this is? The white so bright that adjusting for it makes the photo look it was taken night.

    Looks like a variety of poison bulb...



    But I'm not sure if it is.

    I've got a bunch.....




    View of the Shining Rock Wilderness from Black Balsam point at the edge of Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina.




    View from a rocky glade near the summit of Bell Mtn (1702 ft/519 m), facing southeast. The rise off to the right is the larger point of the adjacent Lindsey Mtn (summit 1662 ft/507 ft). The birds in the distance are Turkey Vultures .




    View from same glade, facing east.




    View from further down the ridge on Bell Mtn, facing northeast-ish at Lindsey Mtn.




    A rainy day back in May, from the southern part of the Bell Mtn Wilderness, overlooking another part of Mark Twain National Forest to the south and west.




    I love my job .
