After work, I drove to the base of Squaw Peak Road to do a quick climb up to the top. I was pleasantly surprised that the road was already closed to cars, so I had the last three miles of the climb with no one around. As I was climbing, I enjoyed the quiet, saw and heard animals rustling in the bushes and came across a dead deer 🦌 on the side of the road.
I made it to the top just in time to see the sun setting. This was the first time I’ve ever had the overlook to myself, so I was a little more confident to do some asanas in nature. I decided to set the camera up focused on the rock, turned on the slow mo video, and went through a few vinyasas. A sun salutation with the sun warming your face feels awesome.
When I finished, the shots were better than I had imagined.
I got on the bike to descended and as I neared where I had seen the deer, I saw a bobcat eating from the carcass.
It was so cool. Then I started thinking of all the ways God has blessed me (people, nature, work, etc.) I was overcome with gratitude. Not a bad way to start the month of November.
