Cities in the Mist

I was out the door before dawn this morning to do a hard long run in the hills around Austin. It was cold and my breath fogged in the light of my headlamp as I ran and climbed up into the hills. As I got to the highest point I turned and was rewarded with a magnificent view of the city below as dawn broke around me.

The buildings of downtown were just visible in the distance through the mist, with the river bisecting the landscape as it snaked toward them. It was beautiful and a magical moment. I managed to get a photo with my phone, but it really doesn't do it justice.

And yes, that road really is that steep - it was much more fun running back down!!!
