One of the things I love most about living in Arizona is the abundance of wilderness areas that appear untouched by humans. It’s all around us yet sometimes living in the city can separate us from that natural connection. If you’re looking to get in touch with nature, to reduce your stress levels, or to just enjoy some fresh air, check out some of these activities to get anyone in your family out into nature.
These are just a few suggestions and Arizona has so many outdoorsy options! Be sure to let us know your favorite place to get in touch with nature. Leave a comment here or on our Facebook page.
