Snowdon is the highest peak in the UK, apparently. It is in Wales. This is a little village just a few miles away from the start of the trails.
After over an hour of waiting to get to the beginning of the trail at the car park (the lot was full, along with several parking spaces until we were about 3 miles away), we started the journey.
There were several .. big hills ... on the way to the peak. We hiked along one side of them for a while before our trail crossed over to the other side. (Both sides were equally light, so neither could be classified as "crossing over to the dark side".) The trail was basically big rocks forming stairs.
The view on the cross over bit. It was so beautiful! So, so very different than anything I've seen in the UK.
There is a very small figure in blue, I think, at about the middle point of the left side. That is Martin.
Martin and Sarah, enjoying a breather.
This is looking back toward the beginning of the trail. If you look down by the lake, you can see the "easy" trail .. which is basically just a nice walk until you get to the mountain, then it's STRAIGHT up! We did the more gradual climb, which is up, then up, then up, then meets up with the "easy" trail and goes straight up.
Just before the peak. Sarah was a champ! We'd just got out of the straight up bit.
This is the man made peak at the top. I thought it was pretty pointless and refused to go to the top. I only wanted to go to the top of what NATURE had made.
Enjoying our cheesy cobs at the top.
Sarah, Martin, Me, and Ash at the top! Yay for us!
And then we climbed back down.
