This path is heavily eroded, as were others I saw, so must see a lot of footfall in season. It was slippery, too. It was around here that I saw the leaves at the top of this post. You can see it had been frosty the night before, but the frost was disappearing as soon as the winter sun hit it, and it didn't seem very cold. Of course, I was wearing scarf and gloves, which helps.

This walk must have been only two or three miles, but it felt longer because of the steep and slippery parts! The leaflet says to allow two hours, but it took me one. I would have taken longer, and brought a bigger camera, in a more flowery season.
These photos were all taken with my iPhone. It really boosts the saturation, and I had to undo that a little in Photoshop to reduce the intense blueness of the sky to something more natural.
