• Annual escape to the mountains

    As October comes around once again it's time to don the walking boots and head for the hills - this year a fairly short excursion to Snowdonia, staying in the shadow of Cader Idris. The early signs were not very encouraging - driving rain Friday, driving rain and rivers bursting their banks Saturday, but Sunday dawned fair and as the morning wore on the sun stole out from behind the veil of cloud as we topped the mountain. I took my Scottie Flossie with me this year and she loved the scramble - little legs, but four wheel drive helps.

    Peering off the northern edge of Cader into the clouds sweeping by far below the backlighting sun created a Brocken spectre - something I've only ever witnessed once before. October light on the mountains is often remarkable and Sunday was no exception. Monday morning was pretty good too.
