Autumn is a wonderful time in the Yorkshire Dales. The autumn foliage introduces a new colour palette to the scenery with brilliant oranges, yellows and reds contrasting with the vibrant greens we are used to. The early snow falls we have experienced this November set off the autumn colours to perfection and make everything sparkle. The air is mostly crisp and invigorating, and remarkably clear, especially after a snowfall.
At the end of a day out in the Dales, there is always the welcome prospect of a hot or cold drink in a cosy pub, usually with a fire burning. Somehow the cold weather makes people friendlier, so mostly you can rely on banter with the bar staff or other customers to go with your drink.
The waterfalls are particularly spectacular at this time of the year with the snow melt sending the increased volumes of water thundering over the escarpments in it’s race to the sea. We visit Aysgarth Falls, which is such a famous beauty spot in the Dales, frequently to check out how much the River Ure is up. It’s beautiful and awe-inspiring, and also energising and invigorating to be in the presence of so much positive energy.
