Rhinog Fach, Y Llethr and Moelfre Walk, Gwynedd, N. Wales

Well, you are in for a treat… I’ve just discovered that I didn’t post these images when Jude and I visited North Wales in September last year. I’m not sure what happened, nor why I forgot to post them, as they were all shrunk and watermarked ready… As you will see, they do sometimes have blue sky days in Wales! Enjoy!

    • I mentioned your comment to my wife the other day and she reminded me that most of the trees in this area were chopped down to make boats. I guess in those days they didn’t have the concept of re-planting to regenerate the landscape (& save the planet!) That said, the owner of our property came around a month or so ago and I helped him and a few others plant about 40 oak tree saplings. It’ll be interesting see what it looks like in 40 years time.


    • Thanks Donna. It snowed in the UK a few days ago and the top 2/3rds of the bigger mountains that we can see were covered. (I have apic or two which I may well post, eventually). They were digging out sheep in the Midlands, but we’re told it rarely actually snows where we are – possibly due to the (relatively) mild climate, which is due to the ‘warm’ Gulf stream current which washes up the west coast of Wales. Time will tell of course… 😊 (It also possibly accounts for the number of birds which may over-winter in the estuary).

  1. This looks to be a great walk. I have hiked to Rhinog Fawr in the past but haven’t been this direction. Always been meaning to as Llyn Hywel sitting between Rhinog Fach and Y Llethr is so photogenic. Thank you for the inspiration 😊
