Plant Life on Lava
Almost every sizable rock you see at Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument has splotches of bright greens and yellows scattered across its surface. These splotches are lichen, part fungus and part plant (an algae) living together to function as a single organism. These hardy teams are the very first colonizers to appear after volcanic eruptions.
