The Casibari Rock Formation, Aruba

After leaving Curaçao, I arrived on the neighboring island of Aruba.  The first place I visited was the Casibari Rock Formations.  From the top of the rock formations, one can see for a great distance, although much of the vista is occupied by acacia, cactus, and rocks.  In the distance, the Santuario Santa Filomena, a Catholic church, can be seen, as can the volcanic structure, the Hooiberg (Haystack).  Around Casibari are many flowering trees, including a species of Robinia.
