Well, the house is on the market.....

But last weekend was so beautiful, it makes me wonder what we might just be losing.

Rafe and Hal, The Charcoal Burners Track, Wykeham Forest (SE939877)

I'm really going to miss every last tree.... I know - I'm a bit of (a lot of) a tree hugger.

Still a bit muddy on Charcoal Burners Track

Cow Slips.
They used to be a rarity in Wykeham Forest
- not any more

The Sweat Box, Wykeham Forest
Where, in days gone by, men and horses brought in the wood harvest

Blue skies at last over Wykeham Forest

"I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do. They go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far!"

Setting off from Glen Feshie - it was chilly - before the sun had a chance to peep over the hills...  Off we go! Jim - Setting off near Auch...
