Autumn has certainly arrived and with it some heavy October rainfall. The forest is soaking up the moisture, the paths are strewn with leaves, and there are some great colours in the forest. The Blenkinsop Valley is also putting on quite a show. A bird watcher pointed out some Juncos, which I had heard but couldn’t identify. They sound like two stones being tapped together. I am finding it a little distracting now walking and thinking about what I will write, and taking pictures. I can see this post will become less frequent. The experience of being in the mountain taking precedence.
