Mooney Falls Yoga

So I am gonna totally skimp on info for now, but I will update this info soon, but i have been very busy.  This shot shows a young woman doing yoga at Mooney Falls.  Mooney Falls is 12 miles from the nearest road and is quite a trek to get to.   I packed mules and donkeys to carry in the gear for me and I am very glad i choose to do that.  The 12 mile hike was a bit harder than i was expecting, but everything went fine.  We camped near Havasu Falls and walked to Mooney Falls first thing in the morning to get this shot.  It was down a 200 foot cliff, no ropes, gear, just don’t slip.  There are pieces of re-bar stuck in the rock for grip and things to hold on to.  It was insane and I would never do that again knowing how crazy it gets toward the bottom.  Oh also did I mention that all the rock was soaked from the massive waterfalls mist, making the surface wet, slippery and all the more dangerous.  Anyway I got the shots I needed to creat this image.
