The locals are treating this as bit of a joke apparently. The town’s old, largely wooden houses built from Pacific north west timber from Canada are attractive. ...
... is not a cactus at all. This plant looks like nothing else and while it is often described as a giant carrot - which was exactly as Neil first called it - seemingly growing upside down, with its root sticking up to fifty feet in the air. It has a trunk and leaves, but no branches until it's at least a hundred years old.
