Autumn really does reveal some of the most beautiful scenes in nature… a long hike is such a great way to get to know someone better!

As health and fitness is so important, hiking is a challenging pursuit that strengthens muscles and stimulates the body to use stored fat resources to fuel your efforts! Autumn is one of the most beautiful times outdoors and with slightly lower temperatures the conditions are actually more enjoyable for long treks… and with the rutting season coming up all the big stags are lots more active so you might even see a big stag whilst on your travels!

But the light is fading and after a busy outdoors summer many people find snuggling up at home with a fire and hot drinks and looking forward to Christmas one of the most important celebrations in which the brightness that Christmas brings is so welcome in the darkness of winter! Having things to look forward to and work towards is so important and Christmas really is a focal point for enjoyment in dark winter.

This is even one of the greatest times for dating and finding romance! With so many theme nights, plays and events taking place and with party season on the horizon and whether you are in Yorkshire Dating or have a joined a Yorkshire Singles group then being with someone for romance can lead to amazing nights out and of course warming cuddles!

Whilst the shorter days are still full of winter sports and activities, with walking and hiking revealing the most beautiful Autumn and Winter scenery at the same time out nightlife really comes to life in a sense as the darkness allows neon signs and the inviting light of fires and any lighted space becomes more inviting and just coming in doors from the cold and relaxing in the sofa even with a loved one is so lovely really!

As we loose the intensity of the sun and also the duration of daylight hours of sun one of the most striking things to observe is the increase in beautiful misty mornings. the sun can still be out quite early and still has the strength due to its distance from the earth to heat the ground and since it is colder any water evaporation actually rises as steam of surfaces and it can just be quite magical.

For example, if you are walking by a lake the mist can be rising out of the lake and with the sun out it is just one of the most beautiful scenes, especially if all the little birds are busy singing!

Just imaging the scene which is coming, a warming cup of soup, logs on the fire, perhaps you are in bed and a wind is howling outside with rain taping the window, with ice forming on the eves, but you and your loved one a snuggled up in bed warm and toasty! Its also great to watch your favourite program’s on youtube after a night out shopping for Christmas or even at the Halloween fireworks night!

Whatever you are doing, make sure that you have simple emergency supplies in your vehicle and clothing appropriate to the weather conditions, find out online if storms are predicted, what are the temperatures going to be! Have a wonderful Autumn & Winter!
