"Today, five months and three weeks after the accident in the Congolese rainforest, I walked again, and in what fashion! I hiked in the #SwissNationalPark. Stepping in, I felt in my ease, my natural garment of self, at home in my spirit. My leg and foot, worked beautifully," Judd said alongside video of herself hiking.

Judd also posted videos of herself exercising her foot, photos of her physical therapy and a video of herself hiking with the use of crutches two months ago.

The 53-year-old additionally thanked the medical staff who helped her and noted that she was originally expected to start moving her foot, if ever, in one year.

"My leg will never be the same. She is a new leg. And I love her. We are buddies. We have come a long way and we have a fabulous life ahead," she continued.
