Elephant tree. also known as "Torote", is know as a medicinal vegetation for respiratory issues. Cut off the green leaves and make a tea out of it. I was told about this from a Baja native years ago. Did some research and tried it, seems to work well. Thank you Gueribo, very interesting..

I'm guessing that this is Pachycormus discolor. Not sure which genera of Torote is the medicinal one but Pachycormus is in the Sumac family (Anacardiaceae) while the Bursera are in the Burseraceae which includes the Frankincense and Myrrh plants.

Nelson's book is a gem for sure! He and Goldman had quite the arduous treks through Baja.

The paragraph about the giant California Condors they saw in Baja was cool ("making the turkey vultures look like pygmies")!
