Yesterday started badly, we spent most of the day driving and checking localities reported in Desmond Cole's classic Lithops book, but found nothing. In the afternoon, we changed strategy and started asking around farms for Lithops sightings, and got a hint that eventually led us to a 85-year old farm worker, who gave us good instructions. Unfortunately we had to set up camp before getting to the place, because it was getting late.
But in the morning the information proved to be correct! We found a good-sized population of L. hookeri, and spent most of the day doing multi- and hyperspectral imaging of the plants. Now we are having a short break in Prieska, but soon we'll head for new adventures.
