It’s great to have something in the diary for autumn – a treat before the days grow short – that will leave us inspired, energised and well-practised in the daily habit of putting on our boots and getting out there.
A few days in the Lake District at this time can be very special. The colours are almost surreal, with a full range of greens, yellows, and shades of brown from burnt umber to gold.
Albert Camus nailed it with: ‘Autumn is a second spring, when every leaf becomes a flower’.
The waterfalls are usually well-stocked and impressive, and the air carries a wonderful earthy aroma that seems to hold us close to the natural world.
The prospect of returning to hotel comforts, a cosy fire, and great company, makes the idea especially appealing.
If you would like to join a small group for a guided walking break in The Lakes on October 14-16th, you can find out more and book at: Autumn Walks in Lakeland.
