Lea Michele Goes On Soul-Searching Hike Following Cory Monteith Tribute

Lea Michele got back to nature and found solace in the great outdoors when she took a trip into the Californian mountains to celebrate annual US holiday Labour Day.

The 27-year-old Glee actress, who celebrated her first birthday without boyfriend Cory Monteith last week, shared a photo of her soul-searching hike on Twitter along with the caption: “Enjoying this Labor Day tucked away in the mountains, breathing in the fresh air! Have a beautiful day:) “.

In the scenic snap, a reflective-looking Lea can be seen enjoying the breathtaking view from her cosy nook as she lays back on a vintage rug in her hiking gear and shades.

Since losing her co-star boyfriend Cory to a drug overdose in May, the actress has slowly been getting back to her old self, recently returning to work on the Glee set with the support of her co-stars and sharing a series of reassuring snaps on Twitter to show fans she’s coping in the wake of her loss.

But Cory never seems to be far from Lea’s mind, with the actress showing off her new ‘Finn’ tribute necklace last week and also dedicating her Teen Choice Award to her late beau last month.

We’re glad to see Lea kicking back and making the most of her days off with some much-needed chill time. And if anything’s going to help heal a broken heart, it’s an out-of-this-world view like that.
