I didn't have enough time for a long walk today but there was no way I wasn't going out when the sky was so blue and the sun was shining so I opted for a shorter walk that takes in part of Wolfscote Dale. Whilst the colours are still those of autumn the tress are rapidly losing their leaves now and there was a cold edge to the breeze, winter isn't far away.
