Once, forests of Baobab trees that resemble giant mushrooms blanketed parts of Madagascar. But deforestation from farming destroyed most of them -- except for the Avenue of the Baobabs, or Baobab Alley, in the Menabe region of western Madagascar. There, a dozen ancient trees cluster together along a dirt road, surreal-looking guardians of a scrub-covered landscape. Visit at twilight to capture your National Geographic-worthy picture of the trees etched against an African sunset.
