Over the weekend Erika and I headed down to St. George, Utah to attend a friend's wedding and decided to take advantage of our Southern Utah adventure by spending a morning in Snow Canyon. We amazingly arrived at Snow Canyon State Park before sunrise in order to take pictures as the sun was just beginning to hit the red cliffs. It was spectacular and completely worth waking up at 6 am and hiking in the frigid desert air. Before the sun rose we took the opportunity to take some silhouette yoga pictures. We hiked to a lava tube, the sun warmed things up and we soon regretted hiking with our ski jackets.
After a morning full of taking pictures, hiking, exploring the lava tube and attempting yoga poses in precarious locations, Erika sat down on the slick rock and said she wanted to just sit for a minute. She reminded me of the importance of just sitting and taking in the view. No hiking, no pictures, no expectations. Just enjoying the moment. Those moments are not pictured and I'm happy that they aren't. We need more of those.
