Preserve memories with a photography session among the wildflowers of Ojai courtesy of Lavender Inn.  Ojai is a Chumash name that means ‘nest,’ a reference to its location at the foot of Los Padres National Forest and the Topa Topa Mountains. Surrounded by velvet green hills and the Los Padres National Forest, the area is a sought-after destination for rock climbing, hiking, mountaineering and viewing of the Topa Topa Mountains’ evening “pink moment.” Last year, Ojai was surrounded by the Thomas Fire, which has resulted in majestic re-growth of green velvet hills and a plethora of wildflowers.  The offer is good through mid-May, or while the wildflowers last.
