Michael and I spent a couple of hours in the Crags marvelling at the autumn colours as the trees are exceptionally beautiful at the moment. We were amazed to find a massive troop of H.crispa and they were the most impressive examples we have ever seen, they were so majestic that we could have photographed each and every one of them.
