thankfully my photos weren't wiped when my camera decided to spontaneously combust. these are from the first day- please excuse that most of them are blown out, it was hard to see the tiny lcd screen in the blaring sunlight, and also, we just weren't all that concerned with how well they were turning out, as we were busy being captivated by our surroundings. instead of going to the overpopulated hot springs, we decided to explore on our own. we stumbled across the most beautiful creek i have EVER seen- the colors aren't done any justice in these photos- think of clear aqua water running through a desert scene of whitewashed rocks, orange hued sand, and sun-bleached succulents, and that's the closet imagery you'll get to this actual creek... it was surreal. we spent most of our day there, channeling our inner mountain goats while hopping from rock to rock for what seemed like hours. it's impossible to see enough of ojai in one day- we can't wait to go back for more adventures.
