While driving around Baja California Sur this past summer, we stopped at this overlook above Los Barriles. We weren't fooled for a second by these giant "palm trees". They are actually smoke stacks, or some kind of stack anyway, made to look like giant palm trees.
Are you laughing that they would actually think that somebody would believe that there was such a thing as a Jack and the Beanstalk palm tree? Well laugh again.
These are real, live giant palm trees in Santa Maria del Tule, Oaxaca. Look closely. That's me standing at the base of the one in the middle.
