Quiver Tree Forest Sunset

The sun sets behind the Quiver Trees (Aloe dichotoma) in the “Quiver Tree Forest” at Keetmanshoop, Namibia.

Why are they called Quiver Trees?
The Khoisan Bushman people of the Kalahari Desert, hollowed out the succulent branches to make “Quivers” to put their arrows in for hunting game. As there are not a lot of trees and resources in the Desert, they had to use what was available.
