Natural Escape; Tuscon

Photo taken by Thirdeyemom, a survivor of severe postpartum depression. She used travel, writing, and photography, in addition to professional help, to fight her way out of the darkness. See more of her inspiring story here.

About this photo: My family lives in Tuscon, Arizona and over Christmas I had the pleasure of hiking around my most favorite natural escape: Sabino Canyon. I caught this photo on a perfect day and love the brilliant, golden hues of the trees. It is amazing how beautiful the desert can be. Every season is like a new surprise.

    it reminds me a bit of the place I go to in my head when I need to calm down. I’m glad to know it really exists!

      Yes, true beauty does exist. That is why I love to hike, run and be outdoors! That is how I calm myself down. I especially enjoy mountains. So much solitude and peace!
