Yesterdays stunning 9 mile walk with the walking group filled my heart, mind and senses with the most beautiful autumnal colours and shades and brilliant images of flaura and fauna. A veritable feast for the soul.
It was very easy walking with no climbing and plenty of time to take in the wonders of this amazing scenery on Sheffield's doorstep.
We walked from the Foxhouse Pub at L:ongshaw across to Curbar Gap and Froggat Edge. We walked in wind, rain and sunshine - the shafts of sunlight were at times exceptionally spectacular.
You can't help but feel "on top of the world" up here. We used to walk a lot, but are finding we walk even more with the walking group and our walks are more varied.
We looked across to Loosehill where we had walked a couple of weeks ago.
These walks make my weekends feel more like mini holidays.
The young man was home for the weekend so accompanied us on the walk. He was able to explain the Geology of the rock formations which made it even more interesting.
I can't resist a fungi snap or two.
I thought these looked like roses.
And the beasts on the moor were magnificent too.....
Some more so than others.....
He reminded me of my latest sewing project which is waiting to be framed.
Our walks with the group cost us £1.00. If I had paid £100 for this walk I would have thought it was a bargain.
