Hi Tim

The Huntington Gardens are certainly magnificent.  I used to be at Caltec=h,
just a short walk away.  I still have some bromelliads and agaves from th=eir
sale (September I think that was each year, but that was 1981!).
The Arboretum in Arcadia is nearby and quite interesting.
You'll be too late for the camellias at Descanso Gardens in La Canada.
A short drive up the Angeles Crest Highway takes you to the Mt. Wilson
Observatory--only indigenous plants but spectacular views framed by them.
The two hour drive to Santa Barbara is spectacular, and there you can fin=d
great orchid collections (I think I read that Stewart's was sold but when
I was there it was wonderful).  We stayed in a hotel quite near the Unive=rsity
(which is directly on the beach!); formerly (ca 1880) the property had be=longed
to a maniac plant collector and the grounds were full of exotic and inter=esting
plants.   Pacifica Suites (805) 683-6722 5490 Hollister, Goleta, CA 93117.

Have a great trip!
