Santa Paula Creek

Along the high trail to the PunchBowls along Santa Paula Creek in California. Even though you can’t see the creek from here, trust me it’s down there. Very rugged and beautiful in this area with car and truck sized boulders to scramble over, or take this trail, if you can find it! The trail starts […]

Punchbowls, Santa Paula Canyon

The Punchbowls are a series of waterfalls and swimming holes located in the Santa Paula Canyon. The trailhead for these is at Thomas Aquinas College. It is about a 3 mile hike up to the first falls over a fairly rough and rugged, unmaintained trail. It is a popular day hike for the locals and […]

Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Chapel, Thomas Aquinas College

“From its inception, the vision for Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Chapel has been predicated upon four distinguishing marks: beauty, which disposes us to what is true and good; grandeur, which lifts the mind to contemplate God’s transcendence; permanence, which reminds us that God’s word is everlasting; and tradition, which connects us to […]

Sunset over the Painter’s Shack

The small building in the foreground, the Painter’s Shack, is about a 1 mile hike up a gravel road from the campus of Thomas Aquinas College. A favorite haunt of the students, it also is a great spot to get a really nice view of the surrounding countryside, especially at sunrise or sunset.

A small Catholic college in Santa Paula, California that uses the “Great Books” curriculum. There is a new chapel that was just nearing completion when these panos were made.

Bart’s Books, Ojai, California

Their website says “The World’s Greatest Outdoor Bookstore” and perhaps it is. There aren’t too many outdoor bookstores in my neck of the woods (Cincinnati). I certainly recommend checking it out if you are in the neighborhood of Ojai, California. Very cool indeed. You may even spy a “celebrity” or two while there. They have […]
