    Lovely view from the trail head of Shelf Road

    Favorite thing: Ojai is a combination of classes and cultures. Included in the local population are wealthy artists and entertainment people,
    bikers, hippies (yoga & new age), the poor (food stamps and homeless) and a very thriving lesbian population. Obviously not every local fits into one of these groups, but it's interesting to see these sub-culturals co-exist. It makes Ojai for the most part very open and accepting. There are shacks in Ojai, as well as multi-million dollar mansions. The social and culttural gap is astounding.

    Fondest memory: Summer nights in Ojai when it cools down. Festivals in Libby park where everyone congregates.

    Favorite thing: Ojai has long been a mecca for artists. Many have settled here, the most famous being the famous artist Beatrice Wood who lived here most of her life. There are numerous other artists that are showcasd in galleries around town. There are also studios, workshops and the Ojai Art Center. There are also children's activities, plus a Artist Studio Tour sponsored by the chamber of commerce every October. Check with the Ojai Visitors Bureau for more info. http://www.visitojai.com/pages/visit/arts.htm

    Fondest memory: Window shopping through the galleries.

    Favorite thing: The mountain that you can see from nearly everywhere, the sun rises and sets above it with it's famous'pink moment'. A constant nearness with nature.

    Fondest memory: The sun rising over the mountain.
