It may be a difficult time in Hugh Jackman's life amid his unexpected separation from his wife of 27 years, Deborra-Lee Furness, but he is trucking along with the support of his fans.

The Wolverine actor and his wife announced earlier this month that they were separating "to pursue our individual growth."

Though they have yet to confirm whether they are headed for divorce, they are taking some time to themselves, and the father-of-two shared a candid update over the weekend while he lays low.

Hugh took to Instagram Sunday and shared a slew of photos, including some smiling selfies, from a walk in nature surrounded by nothing but towering trees and even some forest animals.

In the first snap, he is sporting his usual salt and pepper beard with a smile on his face, plus an orange hoodie, a windbreaker and a navy cap, posing by a mellow creek.

Sharing more photos from his rainy-day hike, he included more selfies with the green forest as a background, a fallen log covered by moss and mushrooms, plus even a sweet deer sighting.

Hope you enjoyed it."

Hugh gave a candid update from his weekend

Hugh is based in New York City – where it was raining all weekend – and a year before his split from Deborra-Lee, the former couple put up for sale their massive West Village triplex penthouse for nearly $40 million, which overlooked the Hudson River.

The two announced their split with a statement to People on September 15, which read: "We have been blessed to share almost 3 decades together as husband and wife in a wonderful, loving marriage. Our journey now is shifting and we have decided to separate to pursue our individual growth."

We greatly appreciate your understanding in respecting our privacy as our family navigates this transition in all of our lives," signed: "Deb and Hugh Jackman."
