Snowdonia trip

We were at Snowdonia for a couple of days. Walked up Moel Siabod on the first day and were rewarded with (almost) clear view of the Snowdon massif, the Glyderau and the Carneddau range. The walk was a quiet one (we only met one other walker later on) and we had the summit to ourself the whole half an hour we were up there (having lunch). The weather otherwise was pretty awful (60mph winds, 70mph gusts), which made it a pretty nerving experience when descending the mountain. The rain didn't help either.

Also did a couple of small walks around Betws-y-Coed, Beddgelert and Porthmadog the next day, where we had to hitch two separate rides (thanks!) in order to return to our hostel in Capel Curig. We were planning to head up Tryfan on the final day, but due to the weather we decided to just leave it until the next time we return.

The trip did expose how unfit I've allowed myself to get into since my Lewes to Eastbourne via the South Downs Way walk back in September. As spring is here, am really looking forward to more hillwalking excursions.
