Sometimes you can catch a glimpse of the old Southern California—the one that typically only exists in your imagination, through the writings of Eve Babitz, or come to mind when you press play on some classics that came out of Laurel Canyon in its glory days. Like when Neil Young rolls up next to you on the 101 somewhere in Ventura County after you just left Ojai, in his perfect classic car and hat, drenched in that California glow.

Please behold, enjoy, and possibly even frame this photo of Mr. Young, which we post here with great respect to the musician, and his ability to make us smile simply by existing. [Thank you to Meredith Katz for capturing this shot over the weekend.]
