Wounded warrior bravely climbs
Monument Peak, so named for those
that didn't make it to the top after
being stabbed by
agave lechuguilla .
Agave lechuguilla is one of
indicator plants of the Chihuahuan desert,
where it grows very freely spreading
vegetatively by stoloniferous shoots,
which are soft enough to be browsed
by javelinas. The stiff, erect leaves
are tipped with surgically sharp needles
which injure the legs of people or animals
that brush against them.
