We spent the night at Tapo Canyon before moving on to Ojai.

We camped at Camp Comfort--an historically significant point in that area. I was told that Ojai was a cluster of female vortexes, like Sedona's vortexes are male. The vortex phenomena of whirling energy was clear in the vegetation around Camp Comfort and,in fact, all over the Ojai area.
Vortexes can be detected by looking at local vegetation. Trees, shrubs and other growing things tend to make unusual shapes or twist in abnormal ways.

|The vortex influence is evident in the trunk of this tree--there were many like it.|
|This may look like an animal den or human-engineered, but the bamboo all around the campground had grown into these swirling shelters.|
|Sycamores usually grow straight up, but these had grown over in a circle to embrace one another. I called them a couple because they looked like they were in love.|
The Ojai bookstore was just wonderful. They had a geodesic dome behind the bookstore where I could do readings and it, too, was a truly sacred space.

And here are some photos I really liked but had no direct place in the narrative:
