Although it may sound kind of tame and boring, plant hunting is an
activity which requires stamina, preseverance, and an apetite for
adventure. You never know where different kinds of plants may be
hiding. The guidebook might indicate that they should be present in a
particular locality, but the guidebook could be wrong! Some plants may
be found growing right next to the road, whereas locating other plants
might require a hike through forests, a trek through the desert, or a
climb to the top of high mountain peaks.
