Description: 
Shows grassland with shrubs and many Acacias on the hills - where it is more rocky. Grass about 12 inches to 14 high where not grazed, with an occasional taller 3 ft. plant. Burned off in many places. Larger area burned off just beyond, regarded as a benefit to pasturage. De Beers. Acacia, desert grass - no tall trees. [Shantz travel journal, Sep. 30, 1919] Note: could also correspond to j-4-1919: Opp. side of track, same country but just burned off. Old house in back. [Shantz travel journal, Oct. 1, 1919]
