Autumn brings an abundance of mushrooms, and while hiking means watching
not only where feet fall on the path, but scouring its borders for any signs of an
edible treasure. Leaves crunch underfoot, and often ice crystals glisten all day
in the shade at altitude. Chestnuts abound and squirrels can be seen as the russet
toned landscape is punctuated by the red of rose hips drying on their spindles.
