It's the perfect season for a good long walk, when the colder air makes you want to walk faster and further, maybe even tackling one of the Dales 30.
The changing colours of the leaves on the trees in woods such as Hackfall, Freeholders Wood in Wensleydale and Skipton Castle Woods are fantastic, and then there's the crunch of fallen twigs and leaves underfoot.
It's time to dig out your woollens and enjoy wrapping yourself in them. Every walk becomes a chance to discover some special treasure in the form of berries, conkers and nature's windfall. Sloes picked from a hedgerow may find their way into a sloe gin...
The weather may sometimes be changing for the worse, but that means that the waterfalls are full and more spectacular. In some rivers you can even see salmon leaping.
This is the time of year when it's even more enjoyable to take refuge in the cosiness of a traditional Yorkshire Dales pub.
Familiar sights look even more attractive when the Autumn light picks out every detail.
Mornings start with remarkable sunrises, or beautiful swirling inverted mists, full of promise.
The night skies become increasingly dramatic, consolation for the shorter daylight hours.
