Photos While Orange Picking in Ojai

I was in Ojai a couple of days back and took pictures from atop a tall ladder while I picked oranges. Here are the pictures below.

Another northern view of the Topatopa Mountains, 6700 feet

These mountains turn bright pink at sunset.  It is quite beautiful.

Our orange grove is right on the edge of the Los Padres National Forest, which includes the Topatopa Mountains.  This is wild country with lots of deer, coyotes and mountain lions.  Not that we’ve officially seen a mountain lion at the orange grove.  We hope to keep it that way!
