Currently I live 5 hours from Snowdonia National Park, a stunningly beautiful mountainous region in northwest Wales, home to Mount Snowdon (1,085 meters), the tallest mountain in Britain and Wales. Ryno and I headed up there last week, the dark days of winter and the state of the world had me feeling blue. I needed a dose of the best medicine: NATURE.
Temperatures dropped below 0 degrees Celsius (or 30 degrees Fahrenheit) at night but the days were sunny and dry. We camped near a pub for two nights, climbed Snowdon via the Pyg Track, a fun 7.3 mile trip, and wondered off the beaten path to Ffynnon Lloer, a lake with a Rocky Mountain feel, then climbed to the ridge beyond it.
There is definitely a longer hike to be had, I hope to return here someday soon.
