Day 1 (Ysgyryd Fach)

The plan was to park up somewhere short of our destination and have a half day walk.  However as we sat and ate our lunch in the car the snow started to fall quite hard.  A decision was taken to abandon the plan and head for our cottage and to possibly walk from there.

We arrived safely and unloaded the car. Terry had a look at the map and said we could walk to Ysgyryd Fach from base and so suitably dressed we set off in the snow.  As we entered the woodland at the foot of the hill, we met a country ranger out with his dog.  I assume he had his doubts about these two elderly folk and politely asked if were suitably equipped! He accepted our answer and on we went. The top of Ysgyryd Fach is now clear of trees but there was no view because the weather was clamping down. The route down was quite slippery and warranted some Microspikes, but we ignored this and walked down very slowly.

The only picture I have is above, taken on day 2 as I had forgotten to charge the batteries and the views were non existent in any case.
