As I climbed above the valley floor along a moss-lined lane, it would have been good to get a better view of the distant mountains around Blaenau Ffestiniog in North Wales. Alas, on a day such as this, that was never going to be possible.
The vague vista I got showed me a stretch of the Lledr river as it twisted towards the hostel where I had stayed the night before, but you can only just make out one of the mountains in the background. The hostel was Lledr House and not the one in the photograph. Lledr House was a few hundred yards further up the road and was a great place to stay. I look forward to returning soon for another North wales meeting and (hopefully) a StillWalks production walk.
