It’s a hot day…time for a swimmin’ hole! Tar Creek, Ventura County takes a bit of getting to if you’re in Los Angeles. Get to Fillmore, drive up a dirt road for 3 miles, then hike down for 2 and a half miles. But you’re rewarded with natural water slides, 30-ft. cliffs to leap from, and beautiful scenery.
We had seen Seun Kuti the night before, and now, hiking down to these water holes and waterfalls on a perfect day made for a fantastic weekend.
After the hike back up, we washed it down with micheladas (beer, limes, Tabasco sauce, and tomato juice), lots of ice-cold water, and carne de su jugo (a delicious hearty Guadalajaran soup with beef, pinto beans, and bacon in a tomatillo and cilantro soup) at La Fondita in Fillmore.
