May at Rancho La Puerta

A proper hug with a loved one, heart to heart, an arm wrapping embrace, can do wonders for elevating your mood and set the day right. Sometimes for a healing experience, we may need to get a little cardio and head outdoors for a hike.  In either instance, whether it’s the gentle springtime kiss of sunrise on a hike or the warm embrace of a friend, the world seems like a better place.
