A walk in the woods was needed therapy for them.  The smells; pine needles warmed in the sun, fresh air, loamy soil.  The sun is dappled on the ground as it filters through the leaves.  They feel so secluded and encased on their journey until they come upon a clearing in the trees; before them is the splendor of the canyon!  Glorious vistas filled with red rocks and blue skies.  Therapy: needed movement to heal the body and fill the soul.
