TOPANGA CANYON
It was our trip to Santa Barbara.
100 miles, or so, on our bicycles.
We were just starting out.
A beautiful morning. We made it
to the top of Topanga Canyon.
The deep blue of the Pacific Ocean
down in the distance.
Southern California truly at its best.
A steep descent down to Santa Monica.
Cars not slowing down as they passed us.
We drank water and contemplated the moment.
I don’t remember which of us said:
“Let’s go.” And we did.
