    Walking in Snowdonia, Wales. [Photo blog]

    Well, a long and tiring day. Having got to bed at 2am after a night in the pub it was a 6am start, three hours of driving and a day's hiking up Glyder Fach and Glyder Fawr.




    Having done Snowdon several times we opted for the second highest peak next to snowdon.

    Wales is one of those places that is great when the weather is good and dire when, as is usually the case, it is not. Luckily it was a good day and despite a thick cloud covering at about 800 metres.

    Glyder Fach has a natural cantilever at the peak which is a draw for hikers and makes for a good photo op.

    After reaching the peak the clouds were below us.


    The scenery is breathtaking. Hard to believe that there is such an almost Martian-like environment hidden at the roof of Wales.



    Great day, great walk, wonderful place!
