Thanks Trond, for posting additional photos.  That Senecio is a wondrous yet bizarre spectacle, must be amazing to experience this in person. 

Very special, I am longing to return and use more time photographing plants and eventually looking for seeds than walking to the summit!

I can't believe I missed this thread!  What an amazing place!...and not one I'm ever likely to see in person.

I head to South Africa Oct 18-Nov 7...wonder what funky plants I'll see?  We do go to Sani Pass for a day but otherwise it's more typical veld vegetation I'll see.

South Africa is a marvellous country! A wonderfull nature and all the people we met there too. (I went with wife and children some years ago.) All kinds of bulbous plants, Proteacea, Ericaceae and others. Be aware of the baboons though!
