Tom Sandoval fled Los Angeles to spend some quality time with nature amid continued backlash for his affair with Raquel Leviss – who’s currently seeking mental health treatment.
Taking to Instagram Stories this week, the “Vanderpump Rules” star shared several photos and videos of himself partaking in wholesome activities like hiking and archery.
In one selfie video, Sandoval kept a closed-mouth soft smile while rotating himself and the camera to show a massive waterfall behind him.

Sandoval, 40, also appeared to be on some sort of nature walk at one point, as he shared photos of cacti and a trail lined with trees and blooming flowers.
Another photo showed Sandoval – clad in brown sweatpants, a navy T-shirt, Von Dutch hat and blue backpack – taking in the views of a river.
The cover band singer also posted a video of himself using a bow and arrow to hit a target. He appeared stunned when he actually did it, and a few onlookers cheered him on.

Sandoval didn’t reveal where exactly he’s enjoying his nature getaway, but several fans theorized that the cacti and mountains appear to resemble Tucson, Ariz. The Bravolebrity most likely isn’t staying at luxe wellness resort Miraval Arizona, since he recently put them on blast for “alluding” to either or both he and Leviss, 28, staying there.
“They claim to be a refuge for wellness and betterment, but that is obviously false. They’d rather feed into the negativity and spectacle that has engulfed my life,” he wrote via Instagram this week.
Meanwhile, Leviss has stayed off social media while seeking treatment for mental health at an unnamed facility, also in Arizona.

“Raquel and her family decided months before the relationship was discovered that she needed mental health treatment and ultimately decided she would enter a voluntary facility for mental health counseling,” Leviss’ rep told Page Six last week.
The rep clarified she’s receiving “mental health and trauma therapy,” while a source noted that it’s a “long-haul program.”
Both Leviss and Sandoval have been facing severe backlash ever since their months-long affair – dubbed Scandoval – was exposed on March 3.

Sandoval’s now-ex, Ariana Madix, dumped him after discovering the affair just two days before the rest of the world found out.
Scandoval will continue to play out on the current season of “Vanderpump Rules.” Early suspicions amongst the cast aired during Wednesday’s new episode.
“Vanderpump Rules” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
