“Working in behavioral health care, I know the benefits of renewal. I like to renew my spirit by experiencing the great outdoors. My husband and I like to visit National Parks and see the stunning landscapes across the country. We take our kids to these places to share nature’s beauty with them. Last year we visited the Mighty Five national parks in Utah: Bryce Canyon, Zion, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands and Arches. We also went to the Grand Canyon in Arizona and few national monuments. Nature keeps me centered and puts things into perspective. These trips are spiritual for me. They ‘cleanse’ my perceptions and ground me. I’m already looking forward to our next trip which will be to visit the Olympic Mountains in Washington State and the San Juan Islands off the Seattle coastline.”— Tasa Isaak, MS, CBHCM-S, director, Care Coordination Services at Lakeview Center.
