OK, I’m cheating again. (Is it still cheating if you admit to it?) This photo was taken near midday on the 27th, before I left for Johannesburg. I took some aloe photos, but they can wait for the blog on aloes. This shimmering midday picture (I was in short sleeves, a thin cotton shirt) epitomises the best of autumn weather on Sequoia. The trees in the centre distance are in the far corner of the arboretum opposite The House that Jack Built. The Big House is a few meters behind me.
