[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is a quite spectacular sight from the Catalina
Island, one of the introduced red Aloe plants I
believe it is the Aloe arborescens variety, residing
in the upper hills of the Botanical Garden.
Quite splendid patches of red aloe dot here and there
the rugged otherwise schorched, wind swept hill ridges
of the Santa Catalina Island. That assuming you are
out of the residential areas in the ever bussy little
touristy affair harbour of Avalon where California
mayhem weekends occur as the island is shortly
distanced from the Los Angeles and San Diego
metropolitan areas.
