The North Wind is getting stronger and colder in the mountains and we want to make the most of every sniff and every memory we gather. We love every rock, every step we climb. We can feel the snows are coming and look forward to walking in the glens through Winter.

deeply loved by the sun
autumn slips away

a small cloud
breaks away to glide over
green and gold
folding untold magic
in every precious moment
