Icicle Ridge

What do you do when you’re in Icicle Canyon and have a break from yoga retreat? When your afternoon is sandwiched in between two two-hour yoga asana practices? Quite naturally you climb Icicle Ridge and strike a pose on the saddle. The 2 1/2 hour hike offered up a vinyasa practice for my lungs. Constant and rhythmic flow of air. Breathing in. Up. Such freshness! Pine scent. New snow. Bright sunshine. I am here. Breathing out. Letting go. Exhale. Quick. Assisted. Powerful. I am free. Begin again. Inhale this moment. Filling the lungs. Renewal. Slip slide, glisade, galloping joyfully down the ridge noting the early blooming sedges and wildflowers to return home. Immerse into the salt water hot tub to soak and complete the rejuvenation! A perfect day, I’m glad I spent it with you, Self.
